WHAT IS THE GALICIAN CINEMA & FOOD FESTIVAL?

The Galician Cinema & Food Festival is an event combining gastronomy and cinema “made in Galicia.” The fifth event will be held in Manhattan, New York, right in the center of the American market.

Specifically, GC&FF 2019 will be held in two of the city’s landmark locations: New York’s Instituto Cervantes and Cosentino City Manhattan.

It will take place at the same time as Fancy Food, the USA’s most important food show.

The Galician Cinema & Food Festival is our region’s most important promotional event in the United States because it presents, in a single, attractive, tested and growing format, the quality of Galicia and its brands to the target public and professionals in America.
