A dinner party and Filmmakers Award ceremony honoring Rob Epstein, Jeffrey Friedman and Hima B.
This year we are thrilled to launch our First Annual Filmmakers Award: LIGHTS. CAMERA. ACTION! for exceptional leadership, courage, tireless efforts, and valuable contributions in film-making. For our inaugural year we are honoring Rob Epstein, Jeffrey Friedman, and Hima B.
For an incredible 38 years, the 104 year old Roxie has remained true to its mission to promote and support truly independent film / filmmakers and programming that would likely never be presented at more mainstream, profit-based venues. The Roxie continues to stay rooted in a commitment to taking risks with non-traditional and experimental films – works that are critical to challenging the status quo and inspiring viewers. Films have become one of the most important and effective sources for presenting stories that need to be told and communities that need to be recognized. The Roxie promises that, as well as programs that transcend the traditional movie-going experience – events of synesthesiac proportions! … events that merge music, performance, visual arts, food, drink, and/or critical discourse with film! And provided at an affordable rate! Truly Amazing!!
