All the Wrong Ingredients

Directed by Nicholas Livanos
Narrative Feature
United States | 87 min | 2023

Crush the competition or get banished to a Burger King! A driven young chef reluctantly partners with his out-of-control imaginary friend to make a genius dessert. It’s a test kitchen opportunity like no other. Win, and you’re an instant A-lister. We’re talking: your own restaurant, cookbooks, TV deals. Lose, and you’re blacklisted from the world of fine food forever. Goodbye dreams. So chef Ben throws his ambition into overdrive. But with a singular focus, what happens to the rest of his life?

*This movie is a great fit for audiences who enjoyed the tone of Everything Everywhere All At Once & Jojo Rabbit. The story is like a live-action mashup of Ratatouille & Inside Out.

I hope I can bring this film to your festival audience. My cast, crew, and I all worked hard to make something that would be uniquely entertaining, meaningful, and re-watchable.
