The 2012 NYC Food Film Festival is produced in association with the James Beard Foundation and benefits the Food Bank for New York City, which will receive top tier integration throughout the Festival to remind guests that all New Yorkers deserve access to nutritious food. Additionally, a portion of Festival proceeds will be donated to the Food Bank to assist in its important work.
The NYC Food Film Festival returns to New York City for its 6th consecutive year, offering a unique series of events where food and film lovers will taste what they see on the screen, as attendees are simultaneously served the food that is seen in the films. Produced in association with the James Beard Foundation and benefiting the Food Bank For New York City, the 2012 NYC Food Film Festival runs from October 17-21.
The NYC Food Film Festival has grown from an intimate food-nerd date-night destination to one of New York City’s most beloved festivals, and the largest of its kind in the world. Last year, the Food Film Festival made its 2nd trip to Chicago, where it will return this year from November 15th – 17th for the Chicago Food Film Festival. The NYC Food Film Festival was created by George Motz, the documentary filmmaker behind the award-winning Hamburger America film, book, and mobile app, and host of Travel Channel's Burger Land, along with Harry Hawk. Through documentaries, features and short films, the Festival presents the best, and the most memorable, of the world’s favorite and exotic foods on the big screen...and then serves them to the guests. The NYC Food Film Festival is co-produced by Grease Bomb LLC and Food Films America.
