New York Food Film Fest: Get Your Tickets Now

The 51st annual New York Film Festival is now underway at the Lincoln Center, bringing together acclaimed movies from near and far. The food-lovers among us have a different event to look forward to: the New York Food Film Fest, now in its seventh year and taking place Oct. 23 to 27.

What is a food film festival, exactly? Much what it sounds like: movies whose topics span the culinary genre, from single ingredients to favorite dishes to food-world heavyweights. This year’s festival includes 35 different films. But don’t expect to go hungry as you sit there watching onscreen meals you can’t eat. At the Food Film Fest, you’ll taste along with the movies, in a series of events that pair real-world eating experiences with the feature foods of the films.

At the opening night event, for instance, you’ll view Kings of BBQ: Barbecue Kuwait with a brisket dinner from champion pit masters; at “Farm to Film to Table,” The Chile Film (concerning the chiles of New Mexico) will screen with The Green Chile Takedown, an event in which 15 home cooks face off with their best New Mexican chile dishes. And the “Food Porn Party” will pair a particularly tantalizing series of short films with decadent bites, plenty of beer, and a late-night “food burlesque’ show — you’ll have to attend the event to see what that means.
