Ahead of its October launch, the Adelaide Film Festival is teaming up with Kangaroo Island’s FEASTival this month to present a special evening of film and food.
Australia’s leading native food chef, Andrew Fielke will be joining the Adelaide Film Festival Director Amanda Duthie as they present a great Australian menu, alongside a great line‐up of Australian short films ‐ all against the stunning backdrop of Kangaroo Island.
The Novatech and Adelaide Film Festival ‘FilmFood’ dinner will be held at the Kingscote Wharf, on Saturday April 27, from 7pm.
Andrew Fielke is an award winning Adelaide chef with 34 years international experience including Switzerland, Austria and London’s Savoy Hotel. His passion for Australia’s overlooked native food resources led him to become a leader in developing a ‘Creative Native Australian Cuisine’.
As a ‘taster’ for the big event in October, Amanda Duthie will present a food‐themed short film between each course. Amanda, who is currently finalising the 2013 Adelaide Film Festival program, is excited to blend two of SA’s top industries – film and food – on one night.
The short films will include Steam Boat, a romantic comedy from writer Shirley Barrett; the documentary all about the art of coffee, Cup of Heaven, both from the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS); and the SA‐made animated delight The Donut Hunters. Also playing out on the night will be Reel to Reel: South Australians Turn The Cameras on Themselves, which features a collection of local images from the State Library archives.
Tickets are available at venuetix.com.au or tourkangarooisland.com.au/kifeastival. The Adelaide Film Festival moves to a new month – October – for the first time this year. Its program will be unveiled over the next few months. www.adelaidefilmfestival.org
