Some directors only rub shoulders on a URL; SLMBR PRTY’s creative community exists IRL. Our screenings and panel discussions connect fellow visionaries and introduce today’s most dynamic filmmakers to each other, to clients, and to future collaborators, with the aim of demystifying this complex industry for our community.
A Genre Shorts Trio
We've been genre-obsessed since our inception and for this event we highlighted three stellar shorts from Nyala Moon, Joanna Tsanis, and Annalise Lockhart who are making exciting new work in a variety of genres. The screening was followed by a filmmaker Q&A (moderated by Short of the Week Senior Programmer, Chelsea Lupkin) and a happy hour - all of which was graciously hosted by The Press Room at Alamo Drafthouse.
This event was programmed in partnership with our friends at PANO, a film industry non-profit dedicated to advancing the careers of women, non-binary, and GNC creators in Film, TV & Media.
Movie Lovers "Speed Dating"
While we aren't in the business of LOVE, we LOVE to network and build meaningful connections. Over the years, we've heard great feedback that some awesome partnerships have blossomed from meeting at our events. Directors have met DPs, Editors have met Colorists, and so on!
So, in honor of Valentine's Day, we did our own version of "speed dating". Hosted by our friends at Posteritati.
