The fall season’s premier event returns to celebrate independent filmmakers and the independent film spirit.

Join us Thursday, November 15th, 7-11pm at Sweet Chow, the acclaimed new restaurant in Minneapolis’ warehouse district owned by film industry leaders Julie Hartley, Greg Cummins and Ami Francis. Enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres, Grey Goose® cocktails and wine while listening to music by DJ Chamun and mingling with filmmakers and film lovers – like you!

This year we honor two industry icons: Oscar® nominated writer/director Debra Granik, whose masterfully crafted films touch and inspire cinema lovers around the globe, and local favorite Al Milgrom, who has changed the cultural landscape of the Twin Cities through his lifetime of film programming and advocacy. Hosted by Twin Cities media legend Robyne Robinson.
