As we head into the final weeks of the year, when you might have extra days off for a chill evening of movie watching, allow the directors from our “Movies That Inspire Me” (presented in partnership with FilmStruck) to offer heartfelt advice as to what you should eat.
Though most of the questions we’ve asked our distinguished collection of interview subjects have focused on the films that shaped their careers and lives, we also asked our filmmakers to share some of their go-to movie food.
Some of the standards earn mentions: wine, cocktails, cheese, and popcorn all came up. But a few of the other responses might surprise you.
If you’d like to hear more from the filmmakers we spoke to, you can find all of our conversations at our “Movies That Inspire Me” homepage. We’ve already featured some of our talks with Pablo Larraín, Nicole Holofcener, Roger Ross Williams and Jody Hill. Look for more inspirational film recommendations later in the month from Ana Lily Amirpour, Lucy Walker and more.
“Movies That Inspire Me,” which features conversations with Sundance Film Festival directors about their favorite FilmStruck titles from the Turner Classic Movies and Criterion Collection, will continue regularly throughout the month of December here on IndieWire.
