SummerDocs10 Slideshow: CHEF FLYNN

On Saturday night, the 10th season of SummerDocs wrapped up in spectacular fashion, as the superstar prodigy chef—and film subject—Flynn McGarry served up an elegant menu for a private reception on the lawn at Guild Hall before the sold-out screening of CHEF FLYNN. Thanks as always to our generous hosts (and Board members): Lloyd + Pat Swinney Kaufman and Mary Jane + Charles Brock.

Following the screening, director Cameron Yates and Flynn McGarry joined host Alec Baldwin onstage for an insightful conversation about McGarry’s skyrocketing career and the making of the film. Thanks to the whole CHEF FLYNN team for making our 10th anniversary one to remember!

And with that, we wish SummerDocs a Happy 10th Anniversary! Our heartfelt thanks go out to Alec Baldwin and David Nugent for their unparalleled hosting skills… to Out East for sponsoring #SummerDocs10… to Guild Hall for being a fantastic partner for the past decade… to Candescent Films for sponsoring and celebrating our annual Audience Award… and to our wonderful filmgoing community for celebrating documentary films and filmmakers for ten summers!

And finally, here’s to many more decades to come…


This year’s series is presented by Out East, a new real estate destination by StreetEasy.
