The fourth annual NYC Food Film Festival founded by George Motz (of Hamburger America and a good friend of SE) and Harry Hawk kicks off this Wednesday, June 23rd, with a super line-up of food films playing through Sunday, June 27th. Last year I saw a whole documentary about Peeps—how often do you get to do that? Exactly. There are a bunch of events worth checking out: some are free, some are not, but they all require tickets. And they will all happen rain or shine.
We are giving away a pair of tickets to Brad Farmerie's Southeast Asian Street Food Market on Thursday, June 24 at the Astor Center. Farmerie, the chef at Public and Double Crown, will be curating a meal of beef tendon balls, pig's blood popsicles, dessert burritos and more, to go with four short films: Pork Chop, Squid Chips, Night Market Taipei, and Ipoh Invasion. And if that's not enough, there will be a live squid fry and tasting.
Tickets are $95 and selling fast, but guess what. We're giving away a pair of tickets to one randomly selected lucky winner here. Just tell us your favorite Southeast Asian food, and you'll automatically be entered. The contest ends on Wednesday, June 23 at noon.
