Come enjoy our monthly networking events where filmmakers, film enthusiasts, and talent both in front and behind the camera come together to network, share ideas and help develop the foundation of film-making in Nebraska!

Guests are always welcome. When applicable, announcements and updates are shared about upcoming projects, as well as updates about efforts to strengthen and enhance the film/commercial industry in Nebraska.

And, as always, if you would like to make an announcement at the event about a movie, video, or advertising projects, we would appreciate it if you would run it by a board member first.
See you there!
Sincerely yours,
