As part of this year’s Silver Wave Film Festival, let George Kalivas and Tristan Laughton take you on a tantalizing tour of Windsor, Ontario’s pizza community.
The Pizza City You’ve Never Heard Of is a documentary that follows George Kalivas, a Warner Music Marketing head who was disturbed by the fact that his hometown is typically overlooked on lists of the top pizza cities in the world. In this new film currently making the rounds of the festival circuit, Kalivas sets out to prove that Windsor deserves to be included among the top pizza cities on the planet.
This road-trip documentary explores the most well-established pizza places in Windsor, talking with suppliers, pizza joint owners and pizza enthusiasts about the essential characteristics that define and distinguish a true Windsor pie.
“The Pizza City You’ve Never Heard Of is a true passion project, full of ambition and soul with entertaining characters which could have been cast in the Sopranos,” said Janet Zuccarini, a Top Chef Resident Judge and CEO of the Gusto 54 restaurant group. “This is the little movie that could… could convince anyone who is searching for the perfect slice, to look no further and head to Windsor. I hate to be cliché, but this movie will make you laugh and warm your soul – it’s a must-watch.”
The Pizza City You’ve Never Heard Of will make its Atlantic premiere at the Silver Wave Film Festival on Nov. 5, streaming online until Nov. 11.
