So the official Foodies documentary screening took place two days ago at San Sebastian film festival. Despite meeting each other individually, it was the first time we met in person all together. The movie premiere went really well – all the three screenings, which were part of Culinary Zinema section, were sold out.

What do I think of the movie? First of all, it was very strange to see myself on the big screen. Especially that it’s your real life ( friends, parents, etc) that was being shown. Despite of not agreeing with some of the aesthetic choices by the film makers, I think the documentary is very enjoyable. It is not only exploring the so called foodies phenomena. It looks into the whole picture of the gastronomy universe and how it is adapting to the new world of social media and technology.

Having said that, it’s quite frustrating, but no one still knows where the movie will be shown elsewhere. Will keep you posted as soon as I know.
