Last week at Tiff Bell Lightbox, there was a camp reunion of sorts, where cast and crew from the Canadian comedy classic "Meatballs" came to share their memories to a receptive crowd. The charity screening was organized to support Action Against Hunger, a local group that is also celebrating its 35th birthday.
A number of people associated with the film, both behind and in front of the camera, came out to show their support. Dan Goldberg was one of the main writers and producers of the film, and it's clear that the film quite literally changed his life. "For me, no, nothing was the same [after 'Meatballs']," Dan shared. "It's the biggest change in my life, it's the thing I appreciate the most, and the most enjoyable hit I ever had. Going from zero to that was much bigger than going from that to anything else."
