Cinephiles and gourmands come together for this five-day, foodcentric film festival, showcasing 35 flicks, plus tastings that highlight the bites seen onscreen. The fest opener is a screening of The Kings of BBQ Barbecue Kuwait, accompanied by a brisket feast from BBQ Pitmasters creator John Markus and show champions Johnny Trigg and Tuffy Stone. Other event highlights include a viewing of "Fac & Spera," a portrait of revered French winery Maison M Chapoutier; and the Food Porn Party, featuring the film "Fondue" and a cheese-dipping lounge. The festival benefits the Food Bank for New York City, the largest antihunger organization in the city.
