ShoutOUT!: Serving up, a film festival on food

'The Birth of Sake' by Erik Shirai is a film festival on food. Presented by the creators of A Design Film Festival, it is a wide-angle, round-table take on contemporary food culture and subcultures.
The festival is launched in Singapore at anchor venue Objectifs from 29 April to 14 May 2016 with 8 feature-length films selected from over 80 international submissions. The festival programme includes satellite screenings that are paired with film-inspired menus, exhibitions on food culture, and a talk-show on the creative relationships between food, film and design.
Tickets are available online at at $15 for regular screenings, $25 for the talk-show and $65 for satellite screenings.
Eight feature-length films selected from over international 80 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.


Festival curator Felix Ng will be joined by guests including Hong Kong film-makers Tian Ji and Adrian Lo to chat about the relationships between food, film, and design. More guests to be announced.
30 April, 12.30pm - 2.00pm
