FESTIVAL FLYER (PDF)
Eight feature-length films selected from over 80 international submissions inaugurate the festival. With a World Premiere and seven Asia Premieres, the line-up takes us from the worlds of artisanal saké making and competitive baristaship to an Arctic seed bank and behind the scenes at top restaurants. Their discussions span ideas of food creation and consumption, its art and its politics.
Eight short films, including one looking at Hong Kong's cha chaan teng and another at Singapore's kopitiam, will be shared as bonus content to the screenings. A short film will be paired with and screened before each full-length feature.
Aside from the screenings at Objectifs, two off-site screenings, each paired with a film-inspired menu, will be held at House@Dempsey and Common Man Coffee Roasters.
