“Food affects every single aspect of our lives. If we don't look at the how, why and where our food is coming from, then we lose control of that food.”
Michelin star chef, JP McMahon

‘Dinner 2050: Future of Food in Ireland’, is the first ever Irish film about food to be shown at the Boyle Arts Festival. The documentary is a collaboration between Wicklow chef and food historian, Tadgh Byrne, and Dublin film maker, Max Barry. The one-hour documentary explores how Ireland will eat in 2050, and looks at issues such as how technology will change farming, food security, robot chefs, drone deliveries and sustainability in the food supply chain.

There have been several screenings of the film so far in 2024, all of which have spurred lively discussions, and this screening at Boyle Arts with the film’s creators will likely raise many more. Ireland’s Minister for Biodiversity and Land Use, Pippa Hackett, tweeted after a recent showing: “A well balanced film which avoided polarising the debate on farming and food. Very enjoyable.”

The panellists for the screening in Boyle are Tadgh Byrne (chef and documentary film maker), Lara Hanlon, founder and director of Portion Collaborative (working with businesses and individuals to create a better food future), and Gerry Boland (animal rights and vegan lifestyle advocate, and a well-known, locally-based author and poet).
