IndieWorks: Halloween Special (Horrors, Thrillers, Gore & More!)

Read Recap -->

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 6:00pm. Screening starts at 7:00pm 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.

*This is our Halloween Special! (Trigger warning for some violence & gore in film's of the night.) We encourage people to dress up. The whole CongestedCat team will be in costume. The People's Lounge and Bar, our venue, will be dressed in webs and horror decor & there will be a special Halloween playlist! We'll also have props set up for our photo opps of the evening. We love Halloween & Horror Movies. If you do too, this an event you wont want to miss!*
