Reel Connections | Speed Networking for Filmmakers | Los Angeles

Fanny's (the restaurant at the Academy Museum), and The Next Fun Thing are teaming up to present Reel Connections: Speed Networking for Filmmakers, a professional twist on speed dating geared toward supporting young, up-and-coming filmmakers as they navigate their entrance into the film industry. More than a simple mixer, the event will require a pre-survey and feature a moderator that pairs attendees with a curated selection of peers in order to foster meaningful connections.


  • 8 handpicked people to connect with during the 'speed networking'
  • A complimentary cocktail
  • Small bites
  • A voucher to visit Fanny's at a later date

  2. Check in with your hosts at 8:00 PM
  3. 8:35 PM - 9:40 PM the speed networking will occur
  4. 9:40 PM - ?? hangout!
