More than 100 new films are on view at the 27th annual Sonoma International Film Festival, including the short documentary From Kitchen to Community about local restaurant owners. We were excited to hear about the film from Romney Steele, the cook at Oakland’s the Cook and Her Farmer, one of the restaurants in the film. A showing of the sequel to the Oscar-nominated documentary Food, Inc., featuring investigative authors Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser will also be shown. At a community reception following the two films, restaurants including the Cook and Her Farmer will share small bites in support of the festival’s Food Insecurity Awareness Initiative. Funds from that initiative are donated to The Redwood Empire Food Bank and the California Restaurant Foundation-Restaurants Care.
