NYC Food Film Festival Tickets on Sale

The NYC Food Film Festival returns for its 7th consecutive year, offering a unique series of events where food and film lovers will taste what they see on the screen, as attendees are simultaneously served 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 festival runs from October 23rd-27th, 2013. Among the highlighted films are Mixed Berries, Three Ways and Beer Braised Ox Cheek directed by Matt Checkowski of The D4D. Tickets are now available at 

Beer Braised Ox Cheek and Mixed Berries, Three Ways feature Chef Martin Berg of Michelin-starred restaurant Mathias Dahlgren as he prepares some of his favorite dishes. Each unfolds in reverse as an homage to culinary magic. The films are part of the festival’s Food Porn Party featuring Food Porn Star Larry Cauldwell’s Fondue Lounge, drink selections, a decadent spread of all the delectable dishes seen in the films, and a late-night Food Burlesque Show. 

This is the second time The D4D and Matt Checkowski have had work in the Food Film Festival. Two years ago the Chicago iteration screened its short film for Intelligentsia “Espresso”. The film is part of an award-winning series created for Intelligentsia’s core audience of coffee obsessives and artisanal culturistas that became on online sensation. 

The NYC Food Film Festival is a competitive film festival that presents awards in seven categories: Best Feature, Best Short, Best Super-Short, Best Film Made In New York, Best Food Porn, Food Filmmaker of the Year, and the Audience Choice Award. The Official Selections of the 2013 NYC Food Film Festival are reviewed by a judging panel comprised of members of New York City’s food and film communities. The 2013 judges are: NBC’s Cat Greenleaf of Talk Stoop, Laurence Kretchmer of Bold Food, New York City Film Commissioner Katherine Oliver, Food Writer Rachel Wharton, Takedown King Matt Timms and Chef/Consultant Akiko Moorman.

This year’s Festival will feature six different events showcasing over 35 food films, 15 world premieres and over 150 foods and drinks. Highlights include a bountiful BBQ brisket feast, the return of the notorious Food Porn Party with The World’s First Food Porn Star Larry Cauldwell, and Matt Timms’ Green Chile Takedown. 

Festival Director George Motz said, “It’s incredible that we are returning for our 7th annual Festival in New York City. We are so thankful to our audiences that return to sell-out events and indulge in the most food-focused, unique festival in the world.”
