NYC Food Film Festival: Tortilla Cinema With Rockaway Taco, Food Porn With Brad Farmerie, and More

Happening next month.

The folks at the NYC Food Film Festival, happening October 13 to 16, understand the sort of movie-stomach connection that induces weeklong ramen cravings after a viewing of Tampopo, which is why, for the fifth year, they're throwing a weekend's worth of events that show you food then invite you to eat it. There's a night of kickoff films about burgers and beer followed by a chowdown from Bill's Bar & Burger chef Brett Reichler, paired with craft brews. On subsequent nights, watch two South American foodie films, then dig into a meal by La Mar chef Gaston Acurio; or enjoy an evening of "Food Porn" with Saxon + Parole chef Brad Farmerie. Possibly best of all is the Tribeca Taco Takedown, which pits Rockaway Taco against the likes of Tortilleria Nixtamal and offers a side of taco-centric cinema. Tickets range from $45 to $105 and are available here.
