Opening Friday, March 30th in Toronto and Vancouver is SERVITUDE, the first film to be developed and workshopped through the Telefilm Canada Features Comedy Lab, a CFC Film Program in collaboration with Just For Laughs.

SERVITUDE is directed by Warren P. Sonoda, written by Michael Sparaga, and produced by Sean Buckley & Michael Sparaga. The film stars Joe Dinicol, John Bregar, Linda Kash, Lauren Collins, Aaron Ashmore, Enrico Colantoni, Margot Kidder, and Dave Foley. The movie is being distributed by Alliance Films.

When Josh goes in to quit his job of waiting tables, he discovers the restaurant is woefully short-staffed for the night. To make matters worse, the company's new owners are sending someone over to audit operations. Unable to abandon his post, Josh decides to work one final shift – and what a shift it turns out to be! Not only is the restaurant overrun by intolerable guests, but Josh also uncovers a memo that reveals the new owners plan on firing all the staff. Josh takes control, rallying his fellow servers to take over the restaurant for one final, glorious night.

The film hits theatres after having a sold-out World Premiere at the Just For Laughs Festival in August and a wildly popular festival run throughout Canada!
