Seven years ago the Food Film Festival launched with a simple conceit: share a couple dozen top food films with the New York audience while giving them a taste of the food they see on the screen. Starting next week the festival is back for five days and six screenings, covering films on everything from barbecue to tacos to a dedicated group of Indian temple volunteers that feeds a crowd of 50,000 hungry worshippers. Viewers vote on their favorites to determine the winners of the year.
Screenings also include events such as a barbecue cook-out, wine tasting, and a live cooking competition hosted by Matt Timms of the Takedown series. Tickets are still available but may sell out quickly—$50 to $145 depending on the event or $595 for a festival-wide pass. But if you register with the exclusive Serious Eats code SERIOUS10 you'll receive 10% off the purchase price.
