Sacramento Food Film Festival Ten days of food, beer and movies doesn’t sound too bad does it? Well, that’s exactly what you’ll find at Sacramento’s third annual Food Film Festival, which benefits the California Food Literacy Center. This year’s festival includes the films “Beer Wars” (not a Star Wars knock off), “The Slow Food Story” and “Sweet, Sexy Ocean.” The events are at different venues around Sacramento, including many restaurants, and feature food pairings designed to coincide with the subject of the film. For instance “Bottle Shock” will be screened at Lucca on March 25 and will include a four-course dinner based on the film. California Food Literacy Center Founding Executive Director Amber Stott joins us to explain food literacy and provide details on the festival, which runs from now to March 30.
