The meetup continues with summer in high gear on July 31. Come to network and learn about projects that are looking for people right now. Maybe you have a project of your own? Jump in, the water's fine.
SPECIAL GUEST: Prashant Bhargava, director of the new film Patang (The Kite).
For the uninitiated: this bimonthly networking event provides a chance for filmmakers to meet and collaborate on projects. Are you a screenwriter looking for a producer? A director looking for a director of photography? This event is open to anyone who is interested in making independent media: editors, actors, art directors, composers, make-up artists... Bring your resume and business cards, and we’ll handle the rest. Special guest speakers and community businesses will also be featured.
Prashant Bhargava's debut feature Patang (The Kite) weaves together several stories set during a kite festival in India, and has screened at 25 film festivals world wide, including Berlin, Tribeca, and recently Roger Ebert's Overlooked Film Festival in Champaign, Illinois. Prashant will share his six year journey making Patang, and the ongoing distribution process.
