About Devour! The Food Film Fest
The festival was created by Chef Michael Howell in Nova Scotia as a celebration of film, food and wine culture. In 2016 it made its first cross-country stopover in Okanagan wine country at Watermark Beach Resort. New for this year, the event is expanding across the South Okanagan to celebrate the bounty of the region.
“The first Devour! at Watermark Beach Resort was a huge success, and we are thrilled that this year’s festival has grown to incorporate the surrounding area,” says Howell. “The South Okanagan is one of the top food and wine destinations in the country, and provides the perfect backdrop for celebrating Canada’s excellent culinary film offerings.”
A delicious, action-packed weekend is planned to highlight the South Okanagan’s spectacular food and wine scene, offering guests the opportunity to enjoy creative food and drink selections from celebrated local and visiting culinary talent.
