It's official. Impact Socials are a hit. And like all smart movie studios we are capitalizing on our success with The Sequel. Here's what audiences had to say about our Inaugural Impact Social...
#ImpactSocials give you the courage to make that first date: "I set up two meetings with people I saw at the Social, one for potential collaboration and one for co-miseration. Sometimes it's more about seeing someone again in the right context to say that you might want to take the next step, rather than just about meeting someone entirely new..."
#ImpactSocials are the antidote to the paradox of *social media: "Met several people with whom I had only been in contact virtually so it was good to put faces with names and make personal contact!"
Don't miss this thrilling follow up to the blockbuster media event of the summer that brought out Change.org, Witness, POV, StoryCode, Picture Motion and Sandy Storyline. Kick-Ass 2, Iron Man 3, Fast & Furious 6? Pffftttt!!! Rumor has it that Impact Social Happy Hour: The Sequel features a special guest appearance by London's Marc Silver, hotshot director of the Sundance award-winning film Who is Dayani Crystal?, and the triumphant NYC return of Cara Mertes, who takes over the helm at JustFilms this September. With potential celebrity sightings of this caliber don't wait to register: get your tickets now!
The organizing is on us; the drinks are not. Get there early to enjoy Apple's happy hour (4:00pm - 7:00pm) featuring beer and wine by the glass at half price, and $2 off their signature martinis. Their Vietnamese-style cuisine is not too shabby either. Teetotalers welcome. N or R trains to 8 St-NYU station, or the 6 train to Astor Place station.
We look forward to seeing you!
#ImpactSocials are monthly networking events created to bring together outreach, engagement and innovation strategists; film and media makers; broadcasters and distributors; transmedia producers and digital gurus; scholars and educators; social justice activists and advocates; and progressive cultural organizers.
Held on the first Thursday of every month the goal is to create connections across disciplines, spark collaborations, seed ideas and inspire each other's creativity -- and just maybe have a little fun while doing it.
