Based on its successful international counterparts, the Plett Food Film Festival aims to inform and inspire us with mouthwatering imagery. The award-winning film Cooking History by Péter Kerekes from the Czech Republic will be showcased alongside both local and international feature films, documentaries and short films that focus on food, farming, food manufacturing and food security. This will be followed by thought-provoking discussions hosted by industry insiders. The festivities are not limited to cinema. The event kicks off with a live performance from Zebra and Giraffe, a local cheese market the following day and entertainment from chefs like The Kitchen’s Karen Dudley. The festival is also investing in six young local artists by giving them the opportunity to produce two short films for the festival. To prevent all this food talk from leaving you feeling famished, the Nguni girls from The White House will whip up some delicious meals. You’ll even get the opportunity to taste sushi from Jiro, famous for the documentary, Jiro Dreams of Sushi. The festival takes place from 10 July to 12 July 2014 at The White House in Plettenberg Bay. Season tickets are available for R700 and day tickets from R280 (for four shows). Alternatively you can buy individual tickets per show. Tickets are available from Plett Tourism and via quicket.co.za. For more information, visit plett-tourism.co.za.
