Wednesday was the November edition of IndieWorks. We were worried the cold would keep the crowd away, but we had over 40 people in house. We screened 6 original and riveting films by talented local filmmakers, and the night was a big hit. Thank you everyone who came out to support the filmmakers and spend the evening with us. We hope you enjoyed all the films and the opportunity to network with other filmmakers and film enthusiasts!
Also, a huge thank you to Alyssa Meadows for filling in for Chris as the photographer of the night!
