BIPOC Filmmaker Happy Hour [Online]
5pm-6pm every Tuesday via Zoom
Free, RSVP required.
BIPOC folks in the filmmaking game: drop by a new weekly virtual Happy hour! We want to hold space for BIPOC joy and connection. We might drink a little, laugh a little, and talk about film -- what we're watching, creating, what you want to do in the industry, and what you need. Join us weekly, or whenever you can. Each Happy Hour will take place over Zoom; registration is only required once, then you can attend weekly.
Please also consider our monthly meetup for filmmakers, The Get Together, and weekly Open Script Read for writers.
