What’s a film festival without the food? Bring your own picnic or come early and enjoy our Food Truck Fest presented by Sauce Magazine. The selection of food trucks will vary each week, and you’ll find them parked on the west side of the Museum and along Fine Arts Drive. Food trucks accept cash, credit, and debit cards.
