Sacramento Food Film Festival coming, win restaurant gift cards

Pass the popcorn and get ready to feed your mind, too. The inaugural Sacramento Food Film Festival is set for March 10 at the Guild Theater (Broadway and 35th St., Sacramento), featuring a full day of food documentaries, panel discussions - and of course, some food for noshing.

The festival features eight films, including "Dive," a documentary about the enormous amounts of food we throw away, an exploration of school lunch programs called "Lunch Line" and the plight of small farmers in "Last Crop." Following a screening of "Farmaggedon," a panel discussion will be held with local farmers to discuss the film's points about food policies and regulations.

If you don't have time to grab some of those tasty ribs up the street at T&R Taste of Texas Barbecue (Broadway and 36th St., Sacramento), food will be available at the festival from Whole Foods and two food trucks: Coast to Coast Sandwiches and Drewski's Hot Rod Kitchen.

Individual film tickets cost $6, and $30 on the day of show for all films. However, if you pre-order tickets by the end of today that all-films pass is $25 and you'll be entered in a drawing for gift cards at Mikuni, Ella and de Vere's.

The film festival was founded by Catherine Enfield, a local food truck advocate and a Sacramento Connect partner with her blog Munchie Musings.
