The bar will be closing as of January. As a thank you and celebration of the host bar, CongestedCat is inviting local film lovers, filmmakers, and alumni of the IndieWorks programs to join them January 6th at 7:30p.m. for a farewell party in Peoples Lounge honor. The Lounge, located at 163 Allen Street in the Lower East Side, and its proprietors share the IndieWorks community philosophy of supporting local artists and providing an informal environment for them to screen and mingle about the work they are producing.
The January IndieWorks screening will be on hold while the CongestedCat crew searches for a new home. The goal is to be settled in a new location and resume screenings in February.
