Victoria Film Festival celebrates the start of summer with the ultimate pairing of food and film. For the second year, VFF and Oak Bay Beach Hotel will have award-winning chef, Iain Rennie prepare a delectable tasting menu to complement the foodie flicks.

“We have a multitude of treats in store for Victorians as we roll out film, food and drink at two of the best locations in Victoria, the Oak Bay Beach Hotel and de Vine Winery,” said Kathy Kay, festival director.

Tickets for most of the screenings are $35, and include the film and tasting. There’s also an Extreme Foodie package that includes tickets to each of the Oak Bay Beach Hotel screenings. Extreme foodies also receive two weekday mineral pool passes and four tickets to see regular screenings at the Vic Theatre.
