The Food Film Festival, which the New York Times says is “Dinner and a Movie elevated to an art form”, makes a much-anticipated return to New York City October 19-22 for its 11th consecutive year! Attendees are invited to Taste What They See on the Screen, by enjoying the best food films while simultaneously being served the delicious plates featured on screen. Participating chefs and restaurants include Chef Tatsu of Austin’s Ramen Tatsu-ya, Chef Keizo Shimamoto of NYC’s Ramen Shack and the creator of The Ramen Burger, Chef Karl Palma famous for his Takoyaki Balls featured at The Queens Night Market in NYC and more. Oysters will be provided by Island Creek for the famous oyster scene.
Festival Director and Founder George Motz said, “We have ben trying to obtain Tampopo for a decade because we know that it embodies the true ethos of The Food Film Festival. We cannot wait to share it, and the food in the film, with our fans.”
Critically acclaimed ramen chef Keizo Shimamoto speaks to the importance of the film, “Tampopo influenced ramen chefs worldwide. It put together an unrealistic dream and made it realistic. That’s what makes Tampopo amazing.”
1985’s classic (and rarely seen) Japanese film Tampopo gives a new meaning to the idea of a spaghetti western, recently brought back by the Criterion Collection. Follow the story of this ramen western, as a man helps to make a widow’s noodle shop the best in town. The Food Film Festival takes food porn to another level; showcasing the film’s iconic ramen moments with delectable treats right in your seat.
All events take place at the AMC Empire 25 in Times Square at 42nd Street + 8th Avenue.
All Tickets and VIP Passes are all-inclusive of food, drink, theatre-seating and After-Party access.
