Last week’s film sold out, so register now for this Friday. So many of us are missing the perfect night out — dinner and a movie. Dining out and catching the latest blockbuster on the big screen is such a standard for “date night.” Well, here’s an option to have the same experience, just in a different way: The Flatirons Food Film Festival will offer a weekly dinner and movie series. Each event will offer an exciting and interesting online experience from the comfort of your own home…
…including a streaming featured movie, “paired” takeout dishes from recommended restaurants, recipes for dishes related to the film and expert speakers.
There is a $5 fee for the movie. The cost of the food is on your own, if you choose to order food.
Each Dinner and a Movie event will consist of the following:
A featured food film available to stream online
Specific recommended meals related to the film that viewers can order for pick-up or delivery
For home cooks, suggested Savory Spice Shop recipes for dishes to be made at home
Speakers for a film introduction and post-film discussion via Zoom
The Festival will stream a movie every Friday, including some past favorites. The Festival will send an EventBrite link at least 10 days before each event, with recipe links and participating restaurants.
Approximately one hour before the event, all participants will receive an email with access information for the streaming film, live film intro and post panel discussion by Zoom.
Participants will start watching and “eating together” at 6:30 p.m. (Those who can’t join the live presentation can still access the film and recorded post-film discussion until 12:30 am the next morning.)
Here’s the schedule (as of now):
Friday, April 24 – Tazzeka
The dramedy is about a Moroccan boy who wants to become a French haute cuisine chef
Friday, May 1 – East Side Sushi
The drama about a young Latina single mother who is determined to become a sushi chef despite cultural and gender barriers.
Friday, May 8 – Make Hummus, Not War
The entertaining documentary weaves a fascinating tapestry that explores both the director’s personal connection to hummus and a larger controversy over which country originated hummus.
Friday, May 15 – Hot Doug’s: The Movie
The film is a look into a unique cultural and culinary institution that grew from one man’s desire to create a better hot dog.
