An international food spread, music, celebrity spotting, short films, and an after-party at the ritzy Randwick cinema – is there a better way to spend a Sunday? Closing the Australian Film Festival, the streets surrounding the Ritz Cinema aka The Spot will be closed off for a film themed food festival. You don’t need to get up at the break of dawn to get to The Spot. Stroll in leisurely at 1pm as the multicultural cuisine of Randwick tempts you to eat more than you usually would and at 6pm, armed with dessert and coffee, witness Aussie celebrities Gary Sweet, Sigrid Thornton and Jack Thompson as they are presented with the Australian Walk of Fame award. Although, we hear Thornton maybe a no-show due to prior commitments. When the food’s been had and the celebrities spotted, walk up to the intimate yet glamourous Ritz Cinema Bar for a sparkling finish to a dazzling food and film festival.

You have a few must-try restaurants in your foodie list but time and budget are not on your side. Why settle for one sit-down meal when you can treat yourself to various entrees, mains and deserts from some of Sydney’s leading restaurants? This is no ordinary food festival. Big names like Cafe Sydney (pictured), Flying Fish, Guillaume at Bennelong, Jimmy Liks and Longrain will bring class and panache to Hyde Park just after playing host to the Night Noodle Markets (ended 22 Nov). Get in early and buy sheets of five coupons for $15 that you can exchange for lovely wines from New South Wales and food that’s bound to sell out quickly. Proceeds go to The Aids Trust of Australia. There will also be live music and entertainment so make the best of this rare opportunity kids.

30 October. 12pm – 2pm with entertainment continuing till 5pm. Hyde Park North, Sydney. 9285 4400, aidstrust.com.au
