Short Films and Business Holiday Party with Networking, Music, and Dancing – Thursday, Dec. 5th8-10 pm. Here’s a reminder about our exciting upcoming holiday party for members of the film and business communities.  We’ll be at the Supper Club at 657 Harrison Street, between 2nd and 3rd, in San Francisco.  The event, sponsored by Changemakers Productions and the CrowdFund Film Society, features networking in the bar area, plus music, dancing, and films projected on the large overhead screen in their large central room. We’ll be meeting and greeting everyone from 8-9 p.m. with nametags so you can find others in our group. Invites have gone out to about a dozen Meetup and other groups, so we’re expecting a large turnout of about 50 to 100 people. The event is free as a Kick-Off Introduction to the CrowdFund Film Society’s Festival, though plan to order 1 minimum drink at the bar. We’ll also have a raffle with $50-100 in prizes for those who sign-up through Eventbrite and are on the guest list. RSVP to Eventbrite. Here's the link.
