Food Fest!

Oooo! Oooo! Oooo! The lineup for the NYC Food Film Fesetival was released today. What’s so special? It’s “a cinematic scratch n’ sniff” — you see the movie, you taste the food. Can’t wait for June 23-27.

A few I’m looking forward to:

Widow’s Hole Oysters
Dir. Liza de Guia – 6 min website
Meet Oysterman Mike Osinski whose Greenpoint, Long Island oysters are so local that they go from water-to-table in NYC in the same day.

Obsessives: Knifemaker
Dirs. Meredith Arthur and Eric Slatkin – 14:30 mins website
A portrait of Brooklyn knifemaker Joel Bukiewicz and his custom-made chef’s knives.

Obsessives: Urban Farmer

A short doc about Novella Carpenter, an urban farmer that commandeered a vacant lot next to her Oakland home to build a full-blown farm with goats, ducks, pigs and a robust garden.
