FoodCine.ma is a film festival on food from the creators of A Design Film Festival. The first edition will launch in Singapore from 29 April to 14 May 2016.

Anchored at visual arts centre, Objectifs, the event will feature a curated selection of films on food and its subcultures, satellite screenings with a film-inspired menu, a special presentation examining the relationship of food, film and design, and two exhibitions on food culture.

From over 80 submissions, 8 feature films have been selected for the first edition of FoodCine.ma. Featuring 1 World Premiere and 7 Asia Premieres, the line-up covers a wide range of topics on food culture; from barista competitions, the making of saké, food experience and innovation, a seed bank in Norway and behind the scenes of restaurants from Spain, Israel and Japan.

The festival will also feature 8 short films, each screened before a feature, on the subcultures of food such as pottery, farming, agriculture, Japan’s fast disappearing traditional food producers, Hong Kong’s Cha Chaan Teng and Singapore’s very own Kopitiam.

The festival will also present two commissioned exhibition about food and design at Objectifs’ Lower Gallery:
