About the Plett Food and Film Festival

Launched in 2014, the celebration of some of the best things in life (top-notch food and entertainment) hit Plettenberg Bay. This is one of the most popular seaside towns along the Garden Route. It has gained acclaim over the years for its water sports and laid-back vibe. However, it is now putting itself firmly on the cultural map for this well-loved annual event.

The Plett Food & Film Festival is, as its name implies, focussed on showcasing the wonderful cuisine and the excellent quality of film productions coming out of South Africa. However, it is not limited by genre or style. Rather, many different facets of both food and film are explored, sampled and indulged upon at this exciting event. Some of the well-trained and experienced chefs will be on hand to discuss their inspiration and innovative approaches to enthusiastic fans of all things delicious.

The movies being featured range from old classics like Casablanca to art movies that have been nominated for Oscars and Golden Globes. They are sure to whet the cinematic appetite of seasoned filmos and young creatives looking for inspiration.

Plettenberg Bay (known locally as Plett) is about 20 minutes’ drive from Knysna (in the west) and less than an hour’s drive from the Tsitsikamma, which is east of it. The Knysna Elephant Park, Birds of Eden, Monkeyland and Jukani are all natural attractions that lie in wait for visitors to the festival that want to be part of the Western Cape’s loveliness.
