IndieWorks screens short films produced by emerging filmmakers throughout New York. It provides a platform for those filmmakers to showcase their work in front of an audience and to network with individuals in the local film community.
It also allows other filmmakers to engage in thoughtful Q&A's with the featured filmmakers of the evening.
Free entry! Doors open at 7:00pm. Screening starts at 8:00pm and lasts roughly 2 hours. But stay as late as you'd like! We encourage mingling & networking after the screening in order to spark collaboration & support.
