Slow Motion returns in 2013 at the Al Whittle Theatre in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada as a newer, bigger, independant film festival in collaboration with founding sponsor Slow Food Nova Scotia and the support of Slow Food International.
Honorary Directors Robert Kenner (Food, Inc, FixFood) and Jason Priestley Invite YOU TO PARTICIPATE – As a filmmaker, a distributor looking for that next new film or as a cinema buff that gets off on seeing films about food!
Festival Dates are November 13-17, 2013
We will release an official call for entries via Withoutabox late March 2013.
If you have made a film that relates to food (or wine) please send us an email (email@example.com)
Our vision is to become the “Sundance”for food films.
We welcome industry to join us as we grow…Whether as sponsor, participant, volunteer, funder or filmmaker – help us grow into the most relevant food film fest on the Globe!
“This five day festival offers cinephiles, foodies, chefs, students and food lovers from all walks of life a chance to see all kinds of films about food and wine; shorts and feature lengths films, locally produced and international favourites, new films and classics. For the future, we are positioning Slow Motion as THE go to festival for the Film, Television and digital media industry if you want to find the most au courant films relating to food”
