The Food Film Festival returned for the 13th time to New York for four days full immersion in food and films. Last October, from 24th to 27th, the public tasted delicious food sitting comfortably in the Festival theater while films were shown on the big screen, judged by a panel of Food and Film industry tastemakers, following the Festival motto "Taste what you see on the screen".
“The intersection of food and film continues to grow and the Food Film Fest is at its epicenter," said George Motz, Festival Director.
As every year, at the end of the Festival, the winning films of the Slotted Spoon Awards were also announced. Here the trailers of the 7 awarded independent food-films.
