Screen Bites, the food and film festival, celebrates its Baker’s Dozen this year with 13 events.
The festival started in 2005, every night’s films including one of West Dorset-based filmmaker Robert Golden’s Savouring Europe series. At Broadwindsor Comrades Hall on Friday 20 October, we return to the film he made about the food producers of the area, and many of those featured will be at the hall to talk about their lives and businesses in the intervening years.
At the Screen Savours evening, audiences can also see Dinner for One, the hilarious monochrome English movie about an old lady and her increasingly drunken butler, watched by the population of Germany every Christmas. There are also several shorts including promotional films made by Purbeck Film Festival and the Guild of Fine Food, and a surprise film.
The evening is sponsored by the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As usual at Screen Bites, local food producers will be offering tastings and selling their wares. They will include Nether Cerne Herbs, not listed in the programme, and Bridge House Hotel, Dorset Blue Vinny, Evershot Bakery, Tamarisk Farm, Washingpool Farm Show and Wyld Meadow Farm, all featured in Savouring West Dorset.
Audiences are asked to book in advance, so ensure that the food producers have enough tastings on the night.
