Gourmet Food AND A Sneak-Peek Movie!

Boulder International Film Festival to host a Moulin Rouge themed Valentine’s Day “Foovie”

Boulder - Lovers of great food, movies, and romance rejoice! Boulder International Film Festival will hold a spectacular Valentine’s Day food and a movie event ‘Rendezvous En Rouge’. The event will take place on February 14, 2015 from 5:30 to 9:30 at eTown Hall. The Moulin Rouge inspired event features a combination of gourmet French food and an exclusive sneak preview screening of the upcoming film “5 to 7”. Tickets may be purchased online.

“5 to 7” is a sumptuous romantic tale of an affair between a young writer named Brian (Anton Yelchin) and a woman named Arielle (Bérénice Marlohe), the sophisticated wife of a French diplomat. The two meet outside the Manhattan St. Regis Hotel and begin a passionate love affair with a time constraint. They are only allowed to meet between the hours of 5 to 7. But Brian has some doubts, and so do his long-married parents (Frank Langella and Glenn Close), who also have never heard of 5 to 7 affairs, and who both predict disaster and heartbreak. Can love be contained within the hours of 5 to 7?

“We are excited to be able to offer a premium food and movie Valentine’s event in Boulder”, says Executive Director Kathy Beeck.  “Our festival dates have changed and will now be held March 5-8, 2015 leaving this great opportunity for a Valentine’s preview screening of “5 to 7” before it plays at the festival this year.”

 Guests will be treated to a live music performance with the gypsy swing band Swing Je T'aime and Moulin Rouge costumed characters. The dinner will feature a fabulous French menu of small plates prepared by Executive Chef Graham from the Escoffier School, gourmet French desserts from Guillaume's European Catering, and Sophia sparkling wine from Francis Ford Coppola Winery. Très fabuleuse!
