The brand new documentary and film festival favorite, “The Great Chicken Wing Hunt,” was released in select theaters and, in partnership with digital entertainment curator FilmBuff, across all leading Video On Demand platforms. “Wing Hunt” comes out just two weeks ahead of the Super Bowl, when Americans will eat more than 1.2 billion chicken wings.

Celebrating the wing’s rise from lowly bar food from Western New York to one of America’s (and the world’s) most popular foods, the documentary directed by Matt Reynolds follows a group of self-proclaimed wing enthusiasts on a journey through America’s “Wing Belt” as they attempt to find the world’s best Buffalo wing. Over the course of their journey, the “Wing-Hunters” stop at 72 bars and restaurants, travel 2,627 miles, and try 270 types of wings. After 16 days on the road, and a contentious two-day deliberation, the judges finally settle on one winner, declared the greatest of all.

Along the trip, the “Wing-Hunters” visit the birthplace of wings in Buffalo, N.Y., where the Buffalo wing was invented 50 years ago. The original recipe was just two basic ingredients: Frank’s RedHot sauce and melted butter, a pairing that created the flavor we now know as “Buffalo,” igniting a flavor frenzy that has spread around the world. In Buffalo, the Hunters meet Dom Zanghi, the last-living witness to the events of that fateful night that changed culinary history forever. “The Great Chicken Wing Hunt” marks the first time this story has been told on film.

In addition to Reynolds, the film’s colorful cast of characters includes fellow judges Ben Beavers, a semi-pro-eater; Ron Wieszczyk, an amateur sauce-maker; and Ric Kealoha, a Hawaiian chef based in Prague, as well as a befuddled Slovak film crew and Reynolds’ ever-patient girlfriend Lucie.

“The Great Chicken Wing Hunt” is available on iTunes ( http://bit.ly/18zyIYy), Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, Xbox Video, Sony Playstation, Cinemanow, and Vudu, and will be available on Hulu starting Thursday, Jan. 30.
