Food fans with a love of the big screen are in for a treat this month with the return of Culinary Cinema at the Berlinale Film Festival, from 18 to 23 February.

For this year's 12 edition the theme is “Life Is Delicate” and will feature nine documentaries and a fictional film on the relationship between food, culture, and politics.

“When it comes to cultural and political matters, sensitive decisions have to be made all the time. It’s like in a kitchen, where it’s also tricky to make, at the very least, something edible and, at the very best, something delicate,” Festival Director Dieter Kosslick explains.

And, of course the line-up would not be complete without some film inspired cooking from a line up of international chefs Thomas Bühner, Sonja Frühsammer, Michael Kempf, seventeen-year-old chef Flynn McGarry, and The Duc Ngo.

Tickets go on sale on 12 February online at www.berlinale.de.
