FILMS BY THEMES 2019 PROGRAM
EAT / DRINK / LIVE
Fermentasmania is an industry-led not for profit that aims to be an internationally recognised centre of excellence in the design, production and marketing of fine fermented food, beverages and other products. Humans have been using fermentation for centuries using bacteria, yeast and fungi to create the breads, cheeses, pickles, wines and beers that we love. BOFA uses film to transform the way we eat, drink and live, so we are delighted to welcome Fermantasmania as a new partner in transformation.
