Third Annual Charleston Food Film Festival, Scheduled for November 11-13, 2015, Announces Film, Location and Charity Details
The multisensory, ever-entertaining food and film experience where guests get to taste what they see on the screen as they watch—The Food Film Festival—heads back to Charleston for its third year on November 11-13, 2015 at The Cedar Room. Unlike most food festivals, the main focus is a series of food and beverage based films that are selected after an intense screening process. The Festival’s selected films are judged by a panel of esteemed professionals and awards are presented to winners in a variety of categories. Local and national chefs, beverage professionals, and artisans are paired with each film to bring the content to life. The event benefits local culinary organizations Grow Food Carolina and Slow Food Charleston.
The three-day festival kicks off with an exclusive opening night screening of the World Premiere of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown - Charleston, presented by CNN and continues throughout the next two days with a wide-array of films from around the world as well as local selections such as Cuda, about Summerville, S.C.’s iconic delicacy, the Frank Cuda hot dog, and Frank’s restaurant in town. Also on the bill is Cultured Craft Beer, a film about Charleston’s buzzing brewery scene.
In its ninth year, The Food Film Festival was created in New York by George Motz, a writer, film maker, author, and an expert of America’s hamburger. Each Festival benefits a local non-profit organization. The Food Film Festival also takes place in New York and Chicago. To learn more, visit www.thefoodfilmfestival.com.
