THE FOOD FILM FESTIVAL
A WEEKEND EXTRAVANGANZA

Mingle with the stars of the weekend – the chefs and filmmakers – over artisan cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Experience the whole weekend with Friday's VIP evening with the stars; both the Southern Roadtrip and an evening tastings by land or by sea; and finally, culminate the weekend with a brunch celebrating An American Institution.

We celebrate the South Walton weekend with a showcase of award-winning films, fine food from celebrity chefs, and customized cocktails.
