FotoFocus invites guests to try their hand at cooking film-inspired recipes with their new “SECOND SCREENS: Foodie Edition” series. FotoFocus aims to bring “Dinner and a Movie” to the safety of the your home during this monthly virtual cinematic and culinary experience celebrating food in film.
Each month through May, participants can download a unique, movie-inspired recipe prepared by a local Cincinnati chef to be paired with food-centric films. Films were chosen for their emphasis on food and to celebrate notable film anniversaries in 2021.

- February: “Big Night” (1996) hosted by Chrissy Antenucci of The Wheel
- March: “Spirited Away” (2001) hosted by Hideki Harada of Kiki
