Welcome to the Los Angeles Film & TV Meetup (LAFTV) - a Community-Funded Group!
Voted: One of "11 Ways to Meet Filmmakers Across the U.S." By KC Wright, Backstage | Posted March 3, 2015
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING THOROUGHLY BEFORE REQUESTING TO JOIN OUR GROUP:
Our goal is to connect like-minded Film, TV and New Media working and emerging professionals as well as entertainment enthusiasts through our numerous events, activities and opportunities. We are primarily about networking, collaboration, educational and career advancement opportunities, while establishing friendships in the process.
We are one of the largest, most ACTIVE entertainment industry groups on Meetup. We promote a supportive and nurturing environment, where members respect each other. If you are "high maintenance," feel "self-entitled" or are into fighting and creating drama with other members this is NOT the group for you.
NETWORKING EVENTS -- FREE ADVANCE MOVIE SCREENINGS -- COMEDY EVENTS -- RED CARPET EVENTS -- WORKSHOPS – SEMINARS & MORE:
We bring you the BEST educational, networking & career-enhancing events/opportunities as well as advance movie screenings, with sometimes 20++ events and opportunities a month.
In 2014 we provided FREE ADVANCE SCREENINGS of over 40 TOP STUDIO MOVIES.
Our “LET’S DO LUNCH” and the award-winning HOLLYWOOD NETWORKING BREAKFAST® are VERY popular, monthly networking events.
Our annual picnic, networking events, career-enhancing workshops and seminars, mixers, comedy events, and a host of other activities also keep our members active and busy. SEVERAL NEW EVENTS are currently being developed to benefit our members. Most of the events on this Meetup are produced by the Organizer of this group, but many members organize events as well.
SUGGESTING YOUR OWN EVENT AS A MEETUP:
We encourage members to organize their own Meetup events to share with the group. To promote an event, members must use the “Suggest A Meetup” feature on the home page. Please put in ALL the details requested on the form. IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING A LINK, AND IN THE INTEREST OF “FULL DISCLOSURE,” YOU MUST STATE IF IT IS A FREE EVENT OR IF THERE IS A FEE. YOU MUST LIST THE AMOUNT OF ANY ADMISSION FEES IN THE EVENT DETAILS. If Your “suggested meetup” is something that would benefit our members, we will approve it and send to the entire membership.
PLEASE NOTE: Members may submit to promote an event on this site, but ONLY AFTER HAVING BEEN A MEMBER FOR ONE MONTH OR MORE. We do not want "fly-by-night" memberships whose sole interest is to take advantage of our group and have no vested interest in the continued development of LAFTV. Those who wish to promote "paid" opportunities to our members need to be contributing to the community fund of our group. See info below.
We are a community-funded group. There is a NON-REFUNDABLE annual membership fee of $15 to support the group’s continued success and help defray costs (averages $1.25 a month).
We look forward to your active participation. See you soon at a Meetup and be sure to come up and say "Hi!" :-)
