The Fourth Annual Sacramento Food Film Festival kicked-off Thursday night with a special viewing of award winning short documentaries.

Held at the Goldfield Trading Post in Midtown Sacramento, the event was the kick-off of the 10 festival that celebrates film, Sacramento's emergence as the farm to fork capitol and food literacy. 

Participants at the Thursday event viewed four food-related shorts including The Perfect Solution, Stand Up, How Does it Grow, and Soil Born Farm - Pacific Elementary School. In between each film, the audience enjoyed aappetizer bites donated from Sacramento-based chefs Michael Thiemann of Mother and Empress Tavern, Jay Veregge of Ten22, Aimal Formoli of Formoli’s Bistro, Brian Mizner of Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co., and James Beard Foundation Award-winning Chef Hank Shaw.

The film festival acts as one of the main fundraising events for Sacramento's Food Literacy program. The Food Literacy's mission is to help individuals improve their knowledge, attitude, and behavior towards real food. 

The festival was founded by noted Sacramento food writer Katherine Enfield, who subsequently turned it over to the Food Literacy program as it grew. Addressing the audience on Thursday night, Enfield said she and the Food Literacy program share common goals.  

"We both have the same ideas, we want to educate about food," Enfield said. "It's in good hands."

The festival runs through Sunday, March 29. A complete list of scheduled events can be viewed here.
