This bi-monthly event is a wonderful way to find your next writer/DP/motivation/producer/agent/friend! Join us on Tuesday, March 25th 2014 from 7pm - 9pm to mix and mingle with local filmmakers. Network and learn about projects that are looking for cast & crew right now. Or perhaps you have a project of your own? Looking for inspiration? Don't be shy and jump in!

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.

As always, it's totally free for Chicago Filmmaker members, $5 for non-members. To inquire about membership, go to: or call[masked]. We're bringing the drinks back and we'll be full of cool people talking film... don't miss it!
