When Luke and Brie Are on a First Date played in Los Angeles back in December as part of the Zero Film Festival, a guy named Stefan came up to me afterward to say he really liked it. He was there from Germany with an experimental short of his and he recommended I get in touch with his buddy Sven who organizes a cool film event in Germany called Film Brunch. I sent him the movie and he liked it enough to make it their May selection.
Fast forward to yesterday and I get an e-mail telling me that the screening happened and it was a success, which is good because I was worried about how much a not totally fluent crowd would lose in a film that’s all dialogue with no subtitles. Basically, a group of people get together, 25 in all, and have brunch and then watch a movie. We should do this in L.A.
Stefan was cool enough to send me a picture of the screening room and some of the brunchers. Looks great. Thanks to those guys for organizing it and including our movie. Check out their website if you speak German.
