DOV Festival 2015: The Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts and the Granville Island Cultural Society present Feast on Film
FEAST on FILM – Like Water For Chocolate
Presented by Granville Island Cultural Society and Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts
Studio 1398, 1398 Cartwright Street, Granville Island
Join the Granville Island Cultural Society and the Pacific Institute for Culinary Arts for Feast on Film, an evening of film and food.
Over the course of the evening, guests will view the enchanting Mexican film Like Water for Chocolate, a film about the power of food and love. At the same time they will delight in a three-course meal, with VQA wine pairings, prepared by four emerging chefs from the Pacific Institute for Culinary Arts, who will take their inspiration for the meal from the film itself.
As guests enter the “cinema” and take their seats, they will be served the first course of the evening, an amuse – bouche. Their senses now awakened, they will take their wine and
settle down to enjoy the first half of the film. At intermission, a second dish with a wine pairing will be offered to guests.
The third, or dessert course, awaits guests after the film, along with the opportunity to meet and mingle with the PICA chefs responsible for the fabulous food creations.
($50 + $2.50 GST + $7.25 s/c)

(Kate McIntosh, Belgium)
Like so much good art, Dark Matter defies categorization. Creator Kate McIntosh takes the weightiest issues—time, space and existence—and turns them into wild, anarchic play. You might call this a musical about the universe—the one we know and others that may exist. It has billowing smoke, propulsive percussion, powerful symbolism and crazy dance. What does it all add up to? The answer will be different for everyone, but one thing’s for sure: no one will emerge unshaken. McIntosh has produced a triumph of physical performance, of theatrical conjecture, and, most of all, of imagination.
Hailing from New Zealand and trained in dance, Kate McIntosh works in the intersection of performance, video art, installation and theatre. For 20 years she has performed, both as a dancer and as a creator of original works. She was a founding member of the performance collective and punk rock band Poni, based in Brussels.
