The idea is to accompany the broadcasts of thematic meals, designed by local actors, with local products. Thus, for the first evening of Friday, September 23, after the screening, at 7:30 p.m., of “Chef”, a tasty film by Jon Favreau, a meal will be offered by the food truck of the Cantine Mutine de Douarnenez, and its organic cuisine. , local and vegetarian.
