Tuesday was a special night at IndieWorks! We celebrated the conclusion of our 3rd year and began screening at our new home for the series! Between the 10 phenomenal films, the brilliant filmmakers and the wonderful audience, we had a lot of fun and made some new connections! We hope everyone that was part of it enjoyed the night as much as we did! In total, we had just over 80 people in attendance, which is bit smaller than last year & even the year before. But considering the factors of moving from Manhattan to LIC, moving to Tuesday night, having one less film than past years, it being Election Day AND it coinciding with Tribeca, that turnout wasn't too shabby! We're excited about our huge new venue, The Local, and hope audiences will still join us from all over the City each month despite it being just outside Manhattan.
To all of the incredible people involved in this community who submit their work, attend our monthly series, follow our content and spread the word of anything IndieWorks... we truly thank you. It's been another great year of fantastic films and talented filmmakers.
Three years ago, Christina decided she wanted to create a monthly film series for local independent filmmakers to showcase their work for an audience and connect with their (our) peers in a friendly, supportive, engaging and still encouragingly competitive environment. Sure enough, she made it happen pretty quickly and it has grown to something so wonderful, more so than we could have imagined, in just three years. It's been a real passion project from our team, and we hope it has stayed true to the ideals of helping independent filmmakers find an audience and build a network & community of likeminded, productive & talented individuals. Thank you all for being part of it! We're honored to screen & support your work!
The lineup & nominations can be found in our previous post.
