Truly independent films are made from the gut. The Lunchfilm concept is basic: Mike Plante takes a filmmaker out to lunch, in trade they make a short film for the cost of the lunch. Rules and inspirations are written out on a napkin contract. At times poetically real, at times languidly artistic, Lunchfilms offer a variety of stunning tastes.
With films by: Tom Barndt, Richard Bott, Martha Colburn, Sean Conway, David Fenster and David Nordstrom, Jim Finn, Mike Gibisser, Bobcat Goldthwait, Brent Green, Sam Green, Braden King, Lee Lynch and Naomi Uman, Nicholas McCarthy, Ricardo Rivera, Ben Russell, Kelly Sears, Sarah Soquel Morhaim, Jennifer Shainin and Randy Walker.
