Matryoshka at IndieWorks Halloween Special!

IndieWorks screens short films produced by emerging local filmmakers one Tuesday out of every month. It provides a platform for those filmmakers to showcase their work in front of an audience, network with other creators in the local community, and engage in thoughtful discussions about their creative intentions behind the work.

FREE ENTRY! Doors open at 6:00pm. Screening starts at 7:00pm and lasts roughly 2.5 hours from there. But stay as late as you'd like! Our venue, Sanger Hall Page, serves food til 10pm and drinks until closing (happy hour prices 6-8pm). We encourage mingling & networking after the screening in order to spark collaboration & support.

*This is our annual Halloween Special! (Trigger warning for some disturbing violence & gore in films of the night.) We encourage people to dress up. The whole CongestedCat team will be in costume. Our venue will be dressed in horror decor & there will be a special Halloween playlist! We'll also have props set up for our photo opps of the evening. We love Halloween & Horror Movies. If you do too, this an event you won't want to miss!*
