European Union Film Festival Food Market

Wed October 23, 2019 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Co-presented by the European Union Film Festival

On the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the European Union Film Festival, this special event also launches the festival program with a celebration of European food and cinema at the Gardiner. Visitors will sample European delicacies, cocktails, and wine offered by food sponsors like the Belgian Chocolate Shop, Le Baratin, Cucinato Studio, Croatia Meats, Chef Janos Szekely, Wines of Germany, and more. Two cinematic programmes featuring food scenes from notable European films adds a theatrical twist.

The European Union Film Festival is the unique cultural collaboration of all the EU Consulates and Cultural Institutes in Toronto. Celebrating cinematic excellence with award-winning films, the free festival takes place each November at The Royal Cinema.

About the exhibition

Food and dining were transformed in Europe during the age of Enlightenment by profound changes that still resonate today. What many of us eat, the way food is cooked, and how we dine continues to be influenced by radical changes that occurred in France from 1650 until the French Revolution in 1789. Savour: Food Culture in the Age of Enlightenment explores the story of this transformation with rare objects, fascinating histories, and amusing stories. Learn more
