Bell Lightbox/Toronto theatres - Food related film screenings
There are some good food related films that screen at TIFF Lightbox.
The "Food" series screenings: http://tiff.net/subscriptionseries
(which includes a screening with David Chang introducing "Diner")
They usually do a special food pairing at Luma (you pay for your meal extra to the film series)
There are some other one off screenings including "Step up to the Plate"/ "Entre les Bras" - http://tiff.net/filmsandschedules/tif...
It looks kind of like a French version of "Jiro Dreams of Sushi"
I might try to see that one tonight but will try to post updates specifically for Toronto venues
The full lineup for the Food Subscription series (as well as the Book and science one) has been posted on the TIFF website.
Last year sales were not as good as they hoped and they did single ticket sales at some point (after the first few if I recall)... So right now it is unclear if there will be single tickets for any particular film:
Wednesday, February 13 - Claire Stubbs on I Am Love
Wednesday, March 13 - James Oseland on The Trip
Wednesday, April 3 - David Chang on Eat Drink Man Woman
Wednesday, April 24 - Aldo Sohm on Sideways
Wednesday, May 15 - Anita Stewart on Food Inc.
Wednesday, June 19 - Kent Kirshenbaum on El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

non-member pricing for all films ($5 amount is the ticket order fee):
Package $180.00 $5.00
Senior $144.00 $5.00
Student $144.00 $5.00
Thanks for the reminder, I need to put this series back on my calendar. I went last year to one and it was enjoyable. They do little food samples from local restaurants ( and looks like non local restaurants now too). Last time I went the samples were included in the ticket price so I imagine it is the same still. Got a little bit chaotic but still relatively orderly :)
Just a heads up that single tickets are available for the TIFF screenings now (at least the food series ones). Little pricey as member's tickets are close to $30 so for non-members you are looking at over $30. Considering going to the David Chang one. Oh, and I originally said he was introducing the film "Diner" so they must have changed the movie they are showing with him as it says "Eat, Drink, Man, Woman"
