New York City 2016

  • AMC Empire 25 234 W42nd St.
    New York City

Thank you, New York City!

This being the 10th annual Food Film Festival in NYC, we knew the events would be special, but YOU made them historic. This season we sold out every. single. event. We broke all our records, not only in terms of guests attending, but also in terms of volunteers who showed up to help us pull it off! We could not be more proud of what we've built and could not be more grateful to all of those who encouraged us to keep going. 

See you all next year!
