Open Screen Details
Open Screen Series is a fun concept for filmmakers and creative entrepreneurs in the city, that wants to present their project in whatever stage of production the’re working on, to other filmmakers for feedback and networking. This is a great opportunity to showcase some of your original material [audiovisual] and then have a 3 minute “hot seat” Q&A with the audience. There’s no script! There’s no limits! Each project will be selected randomly that night for the presentation, so make sure you have all your crew and cast ready! It’s gonna be EPIC.
Also, even though this is NOT A COMPETITION OR A FESTIVAL, there will be many prizes and surprises.
OPEN BAR during the event. Only $5 entrance.
