Cinematic and culinary highlights on Lake Zug

The seventh Genuss-Film-Festival will take place from 16 to 23 September.

According to the organisers, the Genuss-Film-Festival on the Lake Zug Promenade offers "a varied programme of inspiring films, great menus, exciting talks and award ceremonies in a tried and tested manner". Thanks to the protection concept, they are confident that the event can be carried out.

The individual events will start at the Seehof cinema (except for the "Soirée Closing" on Thursday, 23 September 2021). Comedies such as "Abe", "Love Sarah" or "Master Cheng" will be shown, but also documentaries: about the craftsmanship of bread baking ("Brot” (bread), cooking guru Yotam Ottolenghi and his dessert buffet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art ("Ottolenghi and the Temptations of Versailles"), the great passion of the old truffle hunters ("Truffle Hunters") or the history of the Burgundy wine festival in its most difficult hours ("Three Days Of Glory").
