Make a Film, Get Free Lunch

default-image

How do you become the next Coen brothers or Francis Ford Coppola? Let a guy take you to lunch. For the last two years Mike Plante, a film programmer for the Sundance Film Festival, has bought lunch for 50 filmmakers. In return for the free meal, they must create a short film for the price of the lunch. The plot of these “lunchfilms” must be based on the lunch conversation, and the contract is hashed out on a napkin. Today, the shorts are screened at film festivals around the country and include works by Sharon Lockhart (Bill: $74.70 at Don Cuco), George Kuchar (Bill: $31.15 at Brandy Ho’s). The next selection of lunchfilm shorts will be shown May 16 at Echo Park Film Center in Los Angeles.  Check here for future screenings.
