The TRUFFE Feast!  Menu Posted!

truffe-blog1Fantastic Fest is the only festival capable of presenting film in 5 dimensions.  We've got length and width of the screen and the theater itself exists in space, plus this year we're featuring RealD 3D digital cinema- that's 4 dimenions by our count.  But, defying all modern notions of cinema physics, Fantastic Fest also offers the most delicious dimension of them all- food.  At the forefront of this revolution in moviegoing are Alamo chefs John Bullington and Trish Eichelberger, who have created some of the most exceptional, exquisite and delicious events in the history of the motion picture.

This Fantastic Fest, to accompany a screening of the director's cut of  Kim Nguyen's film TRUFFE, John and Trish have concocted a three course truffle feast worthy of monuments.  Behold!
