Enfield is “seeking short films with food as the theme,” to screen in March at the third annual Sacramento Food Film Festival. “I’m getting submissions from people around the world, but would love to see our local farm-to-fork community submit some,” she said.

Professional and amateur filmmakers are invited to submit, according to these guidelines:

• Film duration should be at least 30 seconds and up to 10 minutes.

• Food must be the main theme or a strong element of the film.

• Films should be submitted electronically, and be computer-compatible.

• Deadline for submissions is Jan. 15 to


This festival will include panel discussions and dinners paired with films, Enfield said. The full schedule will be available in January at www.

Proceeds from the festival will be donated to the California Food Literacy Center, whose mission is “to inspire change today for a healthy, sustainable tomorrow through enduring community food education” (
