Western MA Filmmakers is a chance for people making film to network, attend events, and build community. Members signing up should use their real picture and name in their profile so we can find each other at events to which we have all RSVPd to. Members who do not attend meetings they have RSVPd to may be removed from the meetup group; this is especially so for those who do not attend the first meeting that they have RSVPd for, for repeated late cancellations, or for repeat no shows.
For area filmmakers who are interested in sharing and discussing their work over the course of several meetings. It's an opportunity to ask specific questions of other filmmakers to help you get past roadblocks, get some gentle feedback, and brainstorm.
Our monthly critique is an opportunity for filmmakers and screenwriters to present their work and get feedback. Please contribute $5 (per person in your group) for this meeting. If this is a hardship, just let me know. Members have been generous so far. In general my costs include meetup.com organizer fee, Iconica rental fee, marketing materials, Facebook ads, transaction fees.
Iconica Social Club is this really neat, super eclectic, brand new cafe. It's right behind Haymarket. That means it's not on Main Street--it's in this historic two story building at the end of the parking lot. If you left Parlor Room and kept on walking straight through the parking lot, this is where you would arrive. Schedule:
~ 6:00pm Note that parking at the meters is free after 6pm.
~ 6:30pm is the time to start gathering and feel free to order any drink or food item from their cafe menu (ie: baked goods). They have juices too.
~ 7:00pm will do only very brief intros, then do rounds of critiques...that's up to 10 minutes reading/screening followed by up to 10 minutes for critique.
Please try to arrive on time, limit cell phone use and any other distractions that might interrupt the presentation and feedback process.
