I just discovered this clip shot by The Takeaway where they visited the opening night of the 2009 festival. They were obviously drawn to Earl Cruze who had come up to NYC with hundreds of sample pints of his amazing Knoxville buttermilk. Note: when you watch the clip, the first taster is my MOTHER...thanks Mom.

The 3rd Annual NYC Food Film Festival was a huge success on many levels - great food, great films, and amazing people showed up for the screenings. The rain may have kept a few filmgoers away on certain nights but rain or shine thousands came to the 7 nights of films. And just before last night's awards ceremony the FDNY's fireboat Kane delighted the crowd at Water Taxi Beach, LIC with an incredible hose display.
We'll have a full recap of the week here soon and a photo gallery is on the way. Unlike last year where only 7 photos were snapped, this year a nightly photographer captured thousands of images on every night of the festival.
Thanks again for a great year. We'd be nothing without your support.

Just incase you were wondering what 8,650 Peeps looks like just check out the photo on the left. Just Born must have gotten the dates for the festival wrong and shipped these three weeks early!
Make sure you are at closing night of the festival when we'll be screening Matthew Beals' Power Of The Peep. And as you can clearly see there will be enough Peeps for everyone.
Another 1,100 Peeps just showed up bringing the total now to 9,750...

The selections have been made and the schedule is being formed. Click here to see the impressive list of films for this year's festival. We have films about Peeps, Clam Pie, Cranberries, and Honey Bees among others. And we are also screening our first-ever food horror short film. This year the festival received close to 65 films and we wish we could show them all...
We are also proud to announce continued support from Peroni Italy, the festival's returning master sponsor.

The deadline has arrived and the selection of films is enormous. Harry and I are amazed at the quality of the films this year.
We have room for approximately 25-30 films and we received over 50 this year. The selection process is going to be very difficult.
The selection of films will be posted on the website by May 1st but we believe it could happen much sooner than that. After the films are posted a schedule goes up.
One film we can tell you about is the out-of-competition screening of the 1996 feature Big Night, June 18th at the new South Street Seaport, Water Taxi Beach. See if you can guess what we'll be making for dinner that night...
If you sent in a food film we thank you for submitting!

Well, sort of. You have until April 3rd to submit your food film for consideration in this year's festival. Many submissions have been received so far but there are still slots to be filled in the schedule. And think of the Slotted Spoon Award you could win! The award we hand out for the 4 judged categories and the Food Filmmaker of the Year is meant to be used, not framed and displayed. It has many uses, including doubling as a weapon (read this craziness).
