The film will be screened during the 5th Georgian Film Festival – Georgia 100: A Film Feast – which is taking place from 1-8 May at the Regent Street Cinema.

As part of the festival a number of Georgian food and drink-related events will be taking place with evenings hosted by the likes of writer Carla Capalbo and winemaker John Wurdeman.

“There is no better way to understand the poetry of Georgia and its unique people than through cinema and the table. Their stories as told by great filmmakers and the traditions of feasts with delicious food, natural artisanal wines with toasting and polyphonic singing will make this year’s festival a unique celebration,” said Jason Osborn, director Life Through Cinema which set up the festival.

A summary of the events includes:

  • 1 May – An exhibition of Georgian Film Posters at Terroirs Wine Bar (which will run until 8 May). Terroirs will also offer an à la carte Georgian menu prepared by guest chefs from two of Tbilisi’s top restaurants, Azarphesha and Poliphonia.
