Food Film Festival

October 11, 2016


The Food Film Festival pairs two of our favorite things and we couldn't be more excited. This year's festival kicks off on October 20 with The Best of a Decade which will feature some of the best food films screened for the 10th anniversary of the event! Tickets for most screenings/tastings are a bit expensive at about $85-$105 per person, but the money goes to the Food Bank for New York City and admission includes the films, food and drinks. If you're a film buff and foodie, this will definitely satisfy your appetite.



September 21, 2016

It's the perfect time of year to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. And once you're over there you should check out Photoville at the Brooklyn Bridge Plaza. Enjoy looking at photos from around the world, talks, workshops, multimedia presentations, and a beer garden! All for free! (Food and beer are not free though). It's a perfectly relaxing and unique way to spend an evening as the summer comes to an end. The event lasts until September 25.


Central Park Conservancy Film Festival

In our opinion, summer just went by way too fast. But it's not quite over. Next week in Marcus Garvey Park and Central Park watch some movies outdoors. The Central Park location is between the 72nd Street Cross Drive and Sheep Meadow. The movies start at 8pm and the area will open at 6:30pm, with a DJ until the movie starts. Movies will be held next Monday-Saturday. Visit the website for a list of the movies playing.

The celebration begins on July 31 and continues until August 27 and most of the events are free. Have fun!
