Atlanta Film Festival’s Food on Film Presents ‘My Cousin Vinny’ on Its 25th Anniversary
This year marks the 41st annual Atlanta Film Festival (ATLFF), a ten-day festival with more than 160 film screenings, educational workshops, events, and more. The festival even has a special event for food lovers with Food on Film, which will screen Academy Award-winning My Cousin Vinny this year.
The screening also coincides with the 25th anniversary of the 1992 film, which was directed by Jonathan Lynn and stars Joe Pesci, Ralph Macchio, and Marisa Tomei. The screening will take place on Sunday, March 26, at 12 p.m. at The Plaza Theatre (1049 Ponce De Leon Avenue Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30306). Tickets are available in advance online for $10 or $12 at the door. The screening will be free to festival badge-holders.
Immediately after the screening, there will be an after-party catered by James Beard Award semifinalist The Federal. The grits-themed party will serve the corn-based dish along with other Southern-inspired food.
The after-party will be located at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center (980 Briarcliff Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30306). Admission to the after-party is free with a ticket to the screening and to festival badge-holders.
