Tweetup in NYC

Some of you may know that I will be participating in the IFP/Jon Reiss TOTBO workshop in NYC this weekend. I am a late add, so you won’t find details about me on their event site. You can look me up on Google or on this site under About. Promise, my ticket is booked and I will be there. I have proposed a tweetup in the city the night before the workshop.

Friday June 4, I would like to have everyone come to the Rooftop Films screening at the New Design High School, 350 GRAND ST., NEW YORK, NY 10002 in the lower east side of town. The doors open at 8pm, screening starts at 9pm. If it rains, there is an inside venue at the same location. I have requested that they give us a small discount on the admission price, normally $10. They haven’t given me a definitive answer yet, but I wanted to get this news out so that you can plan accordingly. I will let you know their answer as soon as it comes and what the high sign will be for the discount (probably a twitter hashtag).

After a little cajoling, mostly because he is afraid of having a late night right before the early morning workshop, Jon has agreed to come along for a bit that night too. So if you would like to meet him, see what he is about, on the fence about joining us the next day, whatever, come. You can still sign up the morning of the workshop if you want. Come even if you have NO interest in the workshop, we might pout, but we’ll get over it and you can meet some of your fellow NYC filmmakers, people you don’t yet know in real life. AND since most of you have expressed a desire to see the tradition of indie films screened in a live setting continue, this will be a good chance to support the idea with a local organization trying to keep that spirit alive.

Hope to see all our NYC tweeps there. Please come up and introduce yourself to me, maybe even wear a badge with your Twitter handle so everyone knows who you are. Mine is @shericandler.

UPDATE: a discount of $4 off the admission has been arranged, but per Rooftop’s request, I can’t publicize the password that you have to say to get the discount at the door. Send me an email on Thursday and I will send you the word. shericand at gmail dot com
