Event Details

On September 9, Farm Burger will pay tribute to one of America’s favorite food documentaries by hosting a 10th Anniversary screening of Hamburger America and a tasting event in conjunction with The Atlanta Film Festival. George Motz, the documentary’s creator and America’s foremost hamburger expert will be in attendance to guide guests as they watch the film and taste burger samples provided by Farm Burger. 


The screening will take place at Midtown’s iconic Plaza Theatre, located at 1049 Ponce de Leon Avenue. While guests view the film, Farm Burger will pass out samples of two of the burgers included in the film, the Green Chile Burger and Goober Burger topped with soft peanut butter. Following the screening, a third sample of the Butter Burger will be served in the lobby. George Motz will lead a Q&A session after the film and his book, “Hamburger America,” will be available for purchase and signing. 


Hamburger America was released in 2005, and tells the story of eight unique hamburger joints across the country and the people behind the burgers. The film is a celebration of American entrepreneurism, nostalgia and family-run business and has received praise from outlets including The New York Times, The New York Post and Saveur.  The film was also nominated for a James Beard Award in 2006. Since the release of the film, George Motz has received three New York Emmy awards and co-founded the Food Film Festival.
