Come ready to learn—and eat.

The fourth annual Long Island Food & Film Fest will be held this weekend at Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington.

For fans of films and savory foods, this is the best of both worlds.

Here’s how it works: Attendees will get to sit down and watch films and can enjoy food featured in the respective films. We’ve all heard of pairing cheese with wine, well this is a bit different. For example, a viewing of the film Deeply Rooted will include a serving of LI cheese pumpkin soup. The showing of Home Flavored will feature mouth-watering black bean tamales with rice. And so on.

Cinema Arts Centre calls it an “enchanted evening, highlighting our local food, the people who produce it, and the difference it can make.” Indeed, it gives a different meaning to food for thought.

While enjoying local delectable delights, those taking part in the annual Long Island Food & Film Fest will hear from various speakers.

The festival is co-sponsored by Slow Food North Shore, which reaches out to farmers and artisans and provides educational services to schools, teaching children about the origin of specific foods, nutrition, and compositing.

Now we’re hungry.

Long Island Food & Film Fest will be held at Cinema Arts Centre, at 423 Park Ave. in Huntington on Sunday, March 12 at 6:30 p.m. $60 members, $70 public. For tickets and more information, visit cinemaartscentre.org
