The second Film Feast Suffolk festival, which celebrates great food and great films, will be held from October 4-7, featuring films, documentaries and short films from around the world, screened in 13 venues across the county

Film Feast patron Mike Leigh, who has been nominated for seven Oscars and was awarded a BAFTA Fellowship in 2015, launched the festival programme on Tuesday, July 30, with a screening of two of his films and a Q&A session at The Riverside Theatre and Restaurant in Woodbridge.

Audiences were treated to screenings of Nuts in May from 1976 and short film, A Light Snack, from 1982.

To mark the launch, The Riverside designed a special three-course menu inspired by the camping theme of Nuts in May.

Dishes included chargrilled chicken pitta pockets with tomato salsa and tzatziki, chargrilled whole seabream with braised cous cous, cherry tomato and burnt lemon and banoffee marshmallow camping cake.

This year's festival is being sponsored by the East of England Co-op. Oli Watts, head of communications and community said Film Feast Suffolk is a fantastic opportunity to shine a light on local producers and businesses whilst bringing communities together.

Films scheduled for screening include Matilda, Chocolat, Blade Runner, Brooklyn and When Harry Met Sally.

The festival opens on Friday, October 4, at Jimmy's Farm in Wherstead, with a screening of Back to the Future and a two-course meal featuring American 1950s classics, sharing platters of cheeseburgers, chilli dogs, buffalo chicken wings with chips and slaw, waffle, banana, chocolate sauce and ice cream.
