More Info

We will illustrate the Buddy's Experience, which includes both food and the creation of a community. The small size of the diner fosters a sense of intimacy not found in larger places. Relationships and friendships form, some of which are confined to the diner while others extend into the outside world.

This also includes the filmmakers, one of whom is a waitress at the diner, while another is a longtime customer and a third is also a customer who has been working at the Somerville Media Center for 30 years. Other customers and their stories will also be involved. 

This will be a collaborative effort between the filmmakers, customers and others from the community. This includes- David, Ricardo, Jason, Amy, Nischay, Theo, Paulo, Caty, Loredanna, Kevin, Cheyenne, Alex, Heather, Edilson, Kell, Jojo, Lenny, William, Mark and his family, Mike, Michael, Billy, Bill, Coffee Bill, Maria, Niki, Joe, Deb, Daryl, Arron, Santiago, Luis, Ale, Linda, Marcelo, Rico, Sarah,Todd & Claire, Zelia, Zaid, Zenalia & Domingos, Grazie, Paola, Cleomar, Negao, Claudio, Dave, Mary, Marcus and others yet to join. 

As you will learn from this film, Buddy's is a unique place which means different things to the various people who patronize the place. 

As one longtime customer put it: "I can replace the food but I cannot replace the experience."

"This program is supported in part by a grant from the Somerville Arts Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council."

It is gonna be promoted and screened throughout independent film festivals such as IFF Boston, Somerville Media Center, Social Media, and movie Theaters - Somerville Theatre, The Brattle, etc.

It will happen, and it will be wonderful. No doubt.
