"From Fascination to Creation - Taste Your Life"
From Fascination to Creation - Taste Your Life - Festival TRANSATLANTYK invites you to Culinary Cinema 2013.
The analogy between the art of film - video and music, and the process of culinary creation is the idea behind the Culinary Cinema; therefore, engaging absolutely all of our senses here is the key. We want to reinforce the questions asked on the screen through a unique experience, and imprint them in the memory of our guests, forever. Through Culinary Cinema, we propagate a healthy, clean, traditional food, in opposition to GMOs and industrial mass production.

Culinary Cinema is one of the most important sections of the Transatlantyk Festival that takes place in Poznan. The rise of culinary arts that we have been observing over the last few years has been reflected in many areas of life. Seemingly ordinary meal preparation has gained the status of a creative process and has become an important key to the spirituality of modern men. The uniqueness of the culinary world has been recognized by the creators of Berlinale Film Festival who seven years ago, for the first time presented to the audience in Berlin an innovative film section, where film screenings were paired with dinners inspired by particular movies. In 2013, in Berlin, 16 films were screened under the slogan "Dig Your Food - From Field to Fork; " they were carefully selected by the curator of this cycle Thomas Struck who also monitors the conceptual relevance of this edition of Culinary Cinema in Poznan.
The culinary journey sets off first into the underwater world of "Mussels in Love." The director Willemiek Kluijfhout will introduce this film herself, and it will open the Culinary Cinema.

Stefano Sardo, the director of the film "Slow Food Story," will be the guest of the evening, and exclusively for the Festival guests, a unique collective of eight chefs associated with the portal, Wszystko Dla Kucharzy, (Everything for Cooks) will combine their strengths.
