Berlin Film Festival: Street Food Returns to Festival for Third Year
Fans of pulled pork, rejoice!
The best in Berlin street meat will return to feed the masses at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival.
The Street Food Market, a collection of food trucks from Berlin's famous Markhalle Neun farmer's market, will celebrate its third year of collaboration with the festival, setting up along the side streets surrounding the event's center at Marlene-Dietrich Platz.
Festival director Dieter Kosslick, a self-confessed foodie, said the street food market, or eatery alley, will again offer “freshly cooked, pesticide-free, seasonal dishes from the region as an alternative to the ‘blind alley’ created by industrial food production.”
The Berlinale Street Food Market is run as a cooperation between Markhalle Neun, food awareness group Slow Food Berlin and the Culinary Cinema, the festival's sidebar focusing on movies about food and food culture.
