2019 Theme: Celebrating Culture through Food

Food is more than a meal. It allows us to connect, share and celebrate culture and tradition . Show us what food means to you, your family or your community!

Ideas your film can explore include:

What does food mean to you and your family?
How do you celebrate your culture, heritage or traditions with food?
How has multiculturalism influenced what you eat?
How does food connect you with your community?
How do you cook with friends and family?

Participation is Easy - Film, Edit, Submit!



Using this year’s theme, create a 3 minute video.
