ATLANTA, GA — The Atlanta Film Festival’s annual foodie-favorite event, Food On Film, returns in 2019 with a marquee screening of the documentary feature THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM, followed by an after party catered by grassfed burger restaurant Farm Burger, paying homage to the sustainable practices demonstrated in the film.

The festival’s tastiest event by far, Food On Film will merge the food-themed movie with a delicious after party on Sunday, April 7, 2019, kicking off with a screening of THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM at 12:00 PM at the Plaza Theatre. The family-friendly documentary from NEON follows a determined couple attempting to transform a depleted plot of land into a diverse, utopian farm outside of Los Angeles.

Directly after the screening, ATLFF is proud to highlight Farm Burger’s commitment to sourcing ingredients from local farmers at the after party at the Highland Inn Ballroom Lounge. Attendees are invited to indulge in an array of farm-to-table menu items served up by the restaurant, all prepared utilizing sustainable, local and humane practices.
