Pirates & Mermaids Pool Potluck Party priates-costumes


This party is open to Austin Film Meet Members and our friends, anyone involved in the local film/video/entertainment industries. Please, no pets. Feel free to bring your kiddos!


Networking should be fun! Building relationships is an essential part of successful filmmaking and Austin Film Meet aims to facilitate connections within our community.


We ask that each guest sign-up to bring a family-size dish to share with the group. All guests are asked to bring a dish/beverage to share with the group. Please be prepared to sign up for an item type (side dish, beverage, salad, dessert, etc.) at registration.

We encourage you to bring food to fit the theme. This can be as simple as choosing the right foods or decorating your presentation of the food accordingly. Need ideas? We created a Pirates & Mermaids Party Ideas Pinterest page to inspire you!

Please consider Paleo, vegan, sugar-free, dairy-free and gluten-free recipes, as many of our members suffer from diet restrictions.

If you are unable to bring a dish to share, you may pay a $10 food fee instead. However, participation is encouraged.
