We’re excited to provide more details about The Best of DEVOUR! and FILMLICIOUS!, The County’s first food and film festival. This one-day event will take place on Saturday, November 28, 2015, at Picton’s historic Regent Theatre and in local participating restaurants.
Four films will be screened at the Regent, each one an award winner from Devour! The Food Film Fest, held annually in Wolfville, NS. This internationally renowned festival is showing 75 food-related films from Canada and around the world. The Hollywood Reporter has called Wolfville “Canada’s Secret Foodie Destination.” Our festival will be the first event to show the four award winners after Wolfville. Film titles will be announced in early November once Devour! Nova Scotia has completed its judging.
The first two films – a short feature film and a full-length documentary – will be screened at the Regent at 2:00pm; a short doc and full-length feature will be shown at 7:30pm. Before the second screening, local restaurants participating in FILMLICIOUS! will offer special menus. To date, three acclaimed County chefs have signed up: Elliot Reynolds at The Hubb Eatery and Lounge, Michael Hoy at 106 Bridge Street, and Sebastien Schwab, location to be confirmed. More participating chefs will be announced in the weeks to come.
Tickets for The Best of DEVOUR! are on sale now at theregenttheatre.org or the Regent Theatre Box Office. Don’t be disappointed; get yours soon!
