If you think you need a girlfriend/ hooker/needy office mate to enjoy one of those tres chic nooners you see in the movies, you haven’t experienced Lunch. Starting off with edible panties, body butter, and “sexy cream,” a shirt-sleeved cog moans his way through an apparently satisfying repast—right down to the passionate devouring of his pink cupcake breasts and a post-sup cigarette. This Sundance finalist will be presented along with other distinguished shorts in tonight’s “2nd Annual Washington, D.C., Short Film Show.” Brought to town by the Asbury Short Film Show of New York and Seltzer Film & Video, the event will screen 11 works from filmmakers such as local animator Rachel Max and Emmy-winner Peter Nolan, some of whom, as noted, explore topics you’re unlikely to be confronted with at your local megaplex. And hey, if the on-screen noshing makes you hungry, free popcorn is included in the price of admission. Get your fest on at 9 p.m. at Visions Cinema Bistro Lounge, 1927 Florida Ave. NW. $15. (202) 667-0090. (Tricia Olszewski)
