Wednesday evening was our last night of IndieWorks at the People Lounge. We explained in a previous post that the People Lounge is shutting down at the end of January. We were so sad about it (still are) and decided it'd be best to not have a final screening there this month, but instead have a farewell party/alumni mixer. The CongestedCat team and People Lounge staff partied one more time, and about 35 of our alumni filmmakers & friends spent the evening with us and networked further with each other. It was a lovely night, and though a sad occasion, a nice way to see the People Lounge off. We'd like to reiterate how grateful we are to Heinz Liu and the People Lounge staff for giving us the opportunity to host IndieWorks (and shoot our web series) there for almost 3 years, and for being so wonderfully supportive and welcoming the entire time. We're sure going to miss them.
Here's the slideshow we had playing during the night, featuring fun moments had at the People Lounge.
We're currently still searching for our new venue. We have some promising leads, and hope to have a new space secured in time for our February screening, tentatively scheduled for February 17th. Hope to see you then!
