NYC Food Film Festival: This Weekend!

Events / Giveaways / Partnerships

Hi Noshers! Happy Wednesday! Only 3 more days to the weeeeekend, woohoo! Got any fun weekend plans?

(Just one of the events at the NYC Food Film Festival. All graphics sourced from festival site)

As for my weekend, I’m attending an event I’m really excited about – the NYC Food Film Festival.  Although this is the 5th year of the festival, I’ve never checked it out until now.  The name says it all – films about food, with the related food to munch on!  Best of all, this event benefits the Food Bank for NYC – a wonderful cause..  This event is right up my alley for several reasons:

  1. I love films.  Or rather, movies – I don’t really know what constitutes a “film” vs. a “movie” but film sounds fancy and I’m not sure if I’m that fancy.  But yes, I love movies – all types and kinds.  And if it’s about food? Even better!
  2. I love food.  ‘Nuff said.
  3. I love immersive experiences.  In other words, I was the little nerdy girl who liked the Little House on the Prairie books and bought the Little House on the Prairie cookbook and made stuff from the cookbook so I could eat it while I read the books.  Yes, that was me.

 

Aaaaannnyway.  there are a number of films showing this weekend (starting tomorrow, actually!), and I’ll be checking out two of them:

Would you just look at that watermelon!  The Food Porn* Party promises to be “Extreme Eats + Closeups + Food Burlesque.”   Check out the link for a sampling of eats (including lobster, octopus and pastries, oh my!  Now this is a party I’m looking forward to.

I’ll also be attending:

Farm to Film to Table is going to be really fascinating for me – I admit I don’t really think too much about where my food comes from, but especially after having joined a CSA this season, I’m much more aware of sourcing and local farms.  I’m looking forward to learning more with this event.

And there are other events as well!  There’s a burger event, a taco takedown and much more.  Check out the site – tickets are still available! Hope to see you there!

Which event would you most like to attend?
