The Windy City is in for a real tasty treat when Mike Plante‘s legendary Lunchfilm short film series screens at Chicago Filmmakers. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the concept, the recap:

Writer/curator/festival programmer Plante buys a filmmaker lunch. The filmmaker must then make a short film that costs the same amount of the lunch and include a few topics discussed during the meal. Plante has curated around 50 short films, but this screening will only include a selection of them.

Personally, I’ve seen two separate Lunchfilm screenings — one at the Echo Park Film Center and one at the AFI Film Festival — and I can say this is an event not to be missed. Below is the list of filmmakers whose work will be included at this particular screening, but I’m guessing this could be subject to change:

Sam Green
David Fenster and David Nordstrom
Bobcat Goldthwait
Sarah Soquel Morhaim
Azazel Jacobs
Brent Green
Braden King
Ben Russell
Martha Colburn
Randy Walker and Jennifer Shainin
Mike Gibisser
Tom Brandt
Naomi Uman and Lee Lynch
