The Pilot - - Classified -

FOGO IS­LAND, NL — The largest film fes­ti­val in the world de­voted to all things culi­nary is com­ing to the Fogo Is­land Inn.

De­vour! The Food Film Fest is set to take place Fri­day, Nov. 3 to Sun­day, Nov. 5.

Fes­ti­val founder, Chef Michael How­ell, will col­lab­o­rate with the Fogo Is­land Inn Kitchen Col­lec­tive to cre­ate a six-course din­ner menu pair­ing six award-win­ning films with in­gre­di­ents sourced from the lands and wa­ters of Fogo Is­land.

Bring­ing true mean­ing to the phrase “watch what you eat,” guests will take in the award­win­ning short films — each run­ning two to 13 min­utes — that in­spire each course and also ex­plore Fogo Is­land. The films are:
