Devour! to expand Canadian and international profile in 2016

BIGGER AND BETTER IN 2016

Look for announcements coming soon about expanded DevourFest!  activities not only in Wolfville and Nova Scotia, but also great events across Canada, the United States and yes, even Europe this year.  The world is starting to take notice of this great little festival in Kings County, NS so we are taking it out to them

“Expanding awareness of this unique convergence of cinema, media arts and gastronomy is an important thrust for the Devour! team this year” says executive director Michael Howell.  “Getting noticed on the world stage as a ‘MUST-ATTEND’ event is key to growth.  Also, enlarging our mandate to embrace more forms of expression and more educational opportunities for students of all ages is also an opportunity for us. We will focus on Food Literacy this year as part of our programming and significantly expanded school  screenings and sessions for Nova Scotian youth.

Devour! really has something for everyone,” says Devour! managing director, Lia Rinaldo. “Nova Scotia is a place for discovery, and there is so much to experience at this year’s Devour! Whether it’s stealing away for one evening of theatre, or revelling in a few days of festivities, come and let us program your palate!”

Tickets to the highly anticipated sixth edition of Devour! The Food Film Fest will go on sale in September through the Devour! website and Ticketpro. The full 2016 program will be available online at devourfest.com at that time. Tickets will also be available by phone at 1-888-311-9090 and at all Ticketpro locations in Nova Scotia.
