At Serious Eats New York, we love movies almost as much as food, so it's no surprise that we love the idea of the second annual NYC Food Film Festival, which begins tomorrow night at Water Taxi Beach.
Food film festival organizers George Motz and Harry Hawk have found movies about many foods close to every serious eater's heart, including pizza, cheesesteak, and currywurst. They'll be serving up what they've found for an entire week, along with thematically appropriate food that promises to be way better than that stale popcorn and fake butter you get at most movie theaters.
On Tuesday June 17, they're taking their act to the parking lot next to Grimaldi's under the Brooklyn Bridge to screen pizza movies and, of course, eat pizza. After the jump check out the festival's trailer. I promise it will make you hungry.
