And this year, cinema has also covered gastronomic establishments “in the district”: in parallel with the Patriki Film Festival, the “Eat! Look! Love! ", which was attended by about 20 local restaurants and bars, offering their visitors not only special cinema gastronomic sets based on the most famous films, but also connection to the broadcasts of all events of the film festival. The gastrotest will last until October 4 and has already become a big event for movie gourmets: in the first week alone, the chefs submitted more than 1000 movie sets!
