The Food Film Festival™ returns to New York City for its 13th straight year! The four-day Festival will feature a series of events where food and film lovers get to Taste What They See on the Screen...right in their seats! At each event, guests are served the food from the films as they watch on the screen in the Festival theatre. That’s always followed by an official Festival After-Party with more food, drinks and fun, served up by chefs and restaurants from New York City and beyond.
