Birns & Sawyer has been, and still is a starting point and final destination for independent filmmakers of all ages, which is exactly why we believe that celebrating the creative work from our local moviemaking community is so important. We have serviced countless films, from features to educational films to music videos and beyond, and on December 15th 2013, we’re proud to be showcasing the work of clients, friends, and members of our own staff at our December Filmmakers Showcase. We will be screening some very well-crafted and imaginative short films of every genre, and we can’t wait to share the experience with you. So, unlike most of our usual blogs, this is more of a unique announcement than a journalistic post.
As an historic company approaching its 60th year of business supporting filmmakers globally and locally, we organized this moviemaking celebration at the iconic and also historic El Portal Theatre. In support of the burgeoning NoHo Arts District and our geographic placement within the community of North Hollywood, we will be showing these fine films on the big screen at this amazing theater. The El Portal is both luxurious and beautiful, which makes it a truly awesome venue for this event.
The event will be from 6-9pm on Sunday, December 15th, and we’re making it free to the public, because that’s the best way to celebrate our filmmaking community at large. So please tell your friends, and come out to the movies… On us! It’s gonna be a great way to begin the holiday season, and a night to inspire you for the new year to come!
And now for some of the official selections…
These are the selected films that we’ll be screening! More to come!
