The NYFVC invites graduating film students to our first annual Graduating Filmmakers’ Mixer at UnionDocs!
Graduating from college marks the beginning of a new chapter in a young filmmaker’s career. While this new chapter is exciting, it can also be quite daunting without immediate access to school resources. Come mingle with each other and forge connections while also meeting members of the oldest film non profit in NY, the NYFVC whose members represent EAI, Screen Slate, Janus Films, SVA, Maysles Films and more. Forge connections and talk shop over drinks with established members of the New York film community and kick start your post-grad film career! In the spirit of the NYFVC’s mission to connect the wider film communities in NY, this event is FREE for students — just bring your ID. Attendees will be given access to our online resource guide for New York-based filmmakers with helpful tips on things from equipment rentals to residencies and labs, public access stations to microcinemas. Once again, this event is FREE for NYFVC members and students with any school ID. (NYFVC Members please RSVP to [email protected])
The New York Film/Video Council is New York’s oldest continuously operating non-profit serving the independent film, video and electronic arts community. For over 70 years, we’ve been a haven for lively discussions, panels and screenings. Founded in the 1940s, the Council was one of the only film organizations operating in New York. Now, in a rich sea of film and media organizations, the Council is unique in drawing together members for conversation across the breadth of our community. Our monthly programming is FREE with an annual membership, $40 individual, $20 students, and $85 institutions (three members). Find us online at http://www.nyfvc.org/.
