Opening Gala Film Ratatouille curated by Phil Rosenthal – IN PERSON
Available for viewers in Nova Scotia in person only with limited capacity.
Phil Rosenthal has chosen Ratatouille as his favourite food film. This Disney classic follows a rat named Remy, who dreams of becoming a chef and tries to achieve his goal by forming an alliance with a Parisian restaurant’s garbage boy.
After the screening, longtime festival host Bob Blumer will stream live from Hollywood with an in-person conversation with Everybody Loves Raymond creator Phil Rosenthal about his hot Netflix show Somebody Feed Phil and travel, food and life in the television business.
On this special evening, we will also screen and award the youth winner of the Nourish Nova Scotia Food & Film Challenge, where we invited children and youth of all ages to make a short film about climate change and food. The winner will receive a $500 prize from Nourish Nova Scotia to support a healthy eating program or initiative in their school/community, as well as $500 in equipment from CBC.
