IndieWorks at The Local NYC in Long Island City, Queens on June 14, 2016.
IndieWorks Kicked Off Year 4 at The Local in LIC

(released 6/20/2016)

Congested Cat will be producing another IndieWorks this July 12th, 2016 at The Local NYC in Long Island City (LIC). The gathering of local filmmakers is about two hours of programed shorts, filmmaker Q&A's, and award recognitions. The community minded event is tagged "Discover shorts. Find an Audience. Build Community."

Hosted by Ricardo Manigat & Gwen Albers, the evening runs from 6:30pm to 10:30pm. Christina Raia started the event series in April 2013 and now it is run by the Congested Cat Productions team. For more info on the team, go here:

The IndieWorks series starts in June, which is now in its fourth year, and ends in April with an annual Best of Fest featuring Silver Whiskers Awards.  The June screening had approximately 60 in attendance.  The room at The Local was more comfortable and had better viewing capabilities than the previously long standing home, Peoples Lounge (LES), which subsequently closed. The bar at The Local even has a special cocktail named for the event - The Congested Cat.

The Local NYC is located at 1302 44th Avenue in Long Island City. Here are a few pics at last month's screening.
