Lunch Selected For 2012 Hollywood Film Festival!

LUNCH, written, directed, and produced by Donna Kanter, has been selected as one of three documentaries for the 2012 Hollywood Film Festival, screening Saturday, October 20, 3:00 p.m. at Arclight Hollywood.

For the past 40 years, a group of comedy writers and directors has gathered every other Wednesday for lunch – and other nourishment. But their meetings mean more to them than affable, professional friendship; rather, a need to keep wit and wisdom alive and well. These are the fabled guys that made America funny. Starring Sid Caesar, Monty Hall, Arthur Hiller, Rocky Kalish, Hal Kanter, Arthur Marx, Gary Owens, John Rappaport, Carl Reiner, Matty Simmons, and Ben Starr.

HFF tickets can be purchased starting Wed., 10/10, via Hollywood’s Arclight Cinemas. Tickets $16, parking $4 for four hours with validation.

LUNCH also debuts at commercial theaters on both coasts:

10/25-11/2 at Laemmle NoHo, 5240 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood (Los Angeles);
11/9-11/15 at Quad Cinema, 34 W. 13th St., Greenwich Village (New York City).
