Food Film Festival 2016, NYC

When: Thursday, October 20 - Sunday, October 23, 2016

Hot Spot: AMC Empire 25, NYC

Deets: The Food Film Festival™ specializes in creating multisensory food and film experiences. At our events, guests watch films about food and simultaneously taste the exact dishes they see on the screen...right in their seats! 

There are two ways you can Taste What You See on the Screen™: Attend The Food Film Festival held annually in NYC, or attend one of our Food Film Fest events in a city near you.


Now in its 10th year, The Food Film Festival is a multi-day, competitive, film festival held each October in NYC. The Official Selections for this festival have become the benchmark of independent food-filmmaking as an art form. Each year, Official Selections are chosen by The Food Film Festival Selection Committee and screened to guests as a part of our gastronomically awe-inspiring events. After being judged by a panel of Food and Film industry tastemakers, awards are presented in 7 categories:

Best Feature Film

Best Short Film

Best Super-Short Film

Best Food Porn Film

Audience Choice

The Made in New York Award

The Food Filmmaker of the Year Award


Throughout the rest of the year, our production team travels the world over to bring the Food Film Fest™ signature experience to new cities. These are branded, unique events and, while they feature films once screened in competition, are not competitive festivals themselves.

No matter where we go, each of our events is curated to highlight a different part of the culinary landscape. No two events are the same, and each one invites guests to experience food in a profound and unique way.

In addition, each event benefits a local food-related charity hand-picked specifically because of the relevant work they do for people in that community, such as The Billion Oyster Project, The Food Bank For New York City, Slow Food Charleston, GrowFood Carolina, and The Good Food Project in Chicago.

Who You May Spot: Chefs

Hint For The Average Socialite: Tickets are available for purchase.
