Film before food. Truly independent films are made from the gut. Just feed filmmakers, and they are inspired to work. The Lunchfilms concept is basic: a filmmaker is taken out to lunch; in trade, he or she makes a short film for the cost o the lunch. Rules and inspirations are written out on a napkin contract. At times poetically real and other times languidly artistic, the resulting Lunchfilms offer a variety of stunning tastes.
