Festin is inspired by the paintings of 17th century Flemish animalist artists (such as Frans Snyder, and Jan and Ferdinand Van Kessel) combined with post-humanistic experimentation to create a vision of a future world in which humans no longer exist. The film portrays a vanitas tableau of decay and disorder, where the guests have been replaced by uninvited intruders. The imagery within the film brings to mind a sort of post-apocalyptic epilogue of humankind, a portent of a future that resembles various present day representations of ghost towns and abandoned settlements from around the world.
