One of the most important things in life is food. We are pretty lucky to be living right in Canada, where we have one of the largest culinary-focused film festivals, Devour! The Food Film Fest which took place in Wolfville, Nova Scotia last from Oct 22-27.
The 2019 festival consisted of different culinary workshops, dinners, networking events and films. The festival screened over 80 new food-and-drink inspired films from 24 countries, (including Canada) centering around “Celebrating Italian Food & Cinema.”
