The good people of Slow Food Edinburgh have teamed up with the equally delightful folk at Edinburgh Larder Bistro for a food and film night.

The film in question is Leviathan which won the best film prize at last year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival.

An experimental documentary about commercial fishing, it’s a visceral, mind-warping experience.

The event starts at 7pm on Thursday 3rd July with a glass of beer or wine and a bowl of Cullen Skink made using Arbroath Smokies.

There will also be guest speakers who will give their views on the film and the issues surrounding sustainable fishing.

The Slow Food movement has been campaigning on fishing issues for many years, raising awareness through various initiatives and the biennial Slow Fish event.

The costs is £12.50 for members and £15 for non-members, which includes a bowl of delicious soup with bread, a sweet treat and a bottle of Stewart’s beer or a glass of wine. Extra drinks can be ordered on the evening.

Places are limited and the first film night sold out so booking sharpish is advisable.
