Community

Lights, Camera, DUMBO Filmmaker Meetup

Between MacArthur award-winning POV, the highly-anticipated opening of the IFP Center and nonstop production action at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, our local filmmaker community has never been stronger. And with the launch of  DUMBO Filmmaker Meetup its about to get even stronger. Taking a page from the DUMBO tech community’s robust Meetup culture (hello, DUMBO Devs!), DUMBO Filmmaker Meetup offers a casual meet and greet environment for anyone interested in filmmaking, producing, documentary filmmaking, nonfiction storytelling, public programming and education.

The inaugural DUMBO Filmmaker Meetup, held in May and sponsored by POV, IFP and the DUMBO Improvement District, attracted more than 150 attendees for mingling, drinks and treats from DUMBO Kitchen. The next event is slated for 6:30pm on July 25 at the New York Foundation for the Arts office (20 Jay Street #740).
