Sleep in, then get your buns to our first event of 2024.

Yes, we will feast together! But even better… (I know, what’s more important than food?) we will be addressing our creative goals for 2024 and discussing how we can persevere, succeed and grow together. If you need accountability, this is your event! But don’t worry, the serious part will be very short and there will plenty of time for chillin’ with friends!

WHO: You! Anyone with an interest in film and video is welcome.

WHEN: Monday, January 1, 2024, 5:00-8:00pm

YUMMY: This is a TACO potluck party, so please bring a family-size dish of taco filling or salsa. This could be so many things. Also, please bring any required serving utensils. We will provide corn and flour tortillas, unsalted tortilla chips, paper plates, paper towels, beverage cups and plastic forks, spoons and knives. Microwave and fridge are available. BYOB beverages! If you have any questions, please email me(at)

See what people are bringing below…

PREPARE: Before you come, try to spend a little time thinking about what your 2024 film/video goals might be. Perhaps you want to direct a short or work specific positions on crew or write a screenplay each month. Whatever they are, please come prepared to share your goals, so we can help support you in your dreams. Also, please think about what obstacles or difficulties you could face in accomplishing those goals, so we can help you overcome those issues and find success.

HOW MUCH: FREE but we always appreciate any donation you can make. AFM survives on the generosity of our donors and volunteer. We couldn’t do it without you! Thank you!
