41st Annual Atlanta Film Festival Food On Film – 25th Anniversary Presentation of “My Cousin Vinny” + After Party
Join us at the 41st Annual Atlanta Film Festival’s presentation of the Georgia-made classic “My Cousin Vinny” on its 25th anniversary. The screening will be followed by an after party catered by The Federal, honoring both southern tradition and one of the film’s most memorable scenes. The Academy Award®-winning film “My Cousin Vinny” was directed by Jonathan Lynn, and stars Joe Pesci, Ralph Macchio and Marisa Tomei. The 1992 film was primarily produced in Georgia and follows Vinny (Joe Pesci), an eccentric Brooklyn lawyer that took six years to pass the bar. Vinny is called by his cousin Bill (Ralph Macchio) to defend him in a murder trial in the deep south, and Vinny is determined to win the case at any cost. This is the fifth year that ATLFF has hosted the foodie-favorite Food On Film event, which pairs a food-themed movie with a delicious after party. The 2017 Food On Film 25th anniversary presentation of MY COUSIN VINNY will take place on Sunday, March 26, 2017. Following the 12:00PM film screening at the Plaza Theatre, ATLFF will shine the spotlight on grits, a cuisine staple of any “self-respecting southerner,” at the after party at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center. The Federal will serve up their take on grits and other beloved southern dishes.
