Immediately after the screening, Studio 11 Films’ will host its’ "Premiere Party" flanked with media, celebrities and guest who will have an opportunity to meet and greet the filmmakers’ and their cast. At what is expected to be a star-studded red carpet event, many of the celebrity mentors and sponsors will be available to support the films and filmmakers they are honored to have worked with.
