The meals at De­vour Osoy­oos’s main screen­ing gala and multi- course din­ner are a far cry from stan­dard Cineplex fare. Chefs fly in from all over Canada for the food and film fes­ti­val, craft­ing dishes that pair with short, food-themed cin­e­matic se­lec­tions. They are some­times in­spired by the ex­plicit ingredients in the movie, other times by the prominent cul­ture or mood. Beef short rib seco from An­cora chef Ricardo Valverde, for ex­am­ple, was served up at last year’s event to ac­com­pany a mov­ing Ital­ian film about me­mory and taste. Pack­ages (which in­clude ac­com­mo­da­tion at the Water­mark Beach Re­sort and a pass to all the fes­ti­val events) start at $369—pop­corn and Cap­tain Amer­ica, this is def­i­nitely not. If you’re more into mu­sic than movies, de­tour down the road to Tin­horn Creek to catch one of their epic sum­mer con­certs ($40) right on the grand lawn, glass of wine in hand, of course.— Stacey Mclach­lan
