Returning to New York City for its 5th consecutive year offering a unique series of events where food and film lovers return to taste what they see on the screen, the NYC Food Film Festival is the only festival in the world that serves 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 2011 NYC Food Film Festival runs from October 13 through October 16, 2011 at Tribeca Cinemas. 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 Fest made its 1st trip to Chicago, where it will return this year from November 18-20th.

The NYC Food Film Festival was created by George Motz, the documentary filmmaker behind the award-winning Hamburger America film, book, mobile app and the new host of Travel Channel’s Made In America, along with Chef 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.

Tribeca Cinemas is located at 54 Varick Street, NY, NY  10013
