A fabulous venue. Extraordinary people. Tasty food. An inspired mission. What do you get when you mix them all together? The answer–all the ingredients for a remarkable networking event. We invite YOU to attend our first Film & Media Association of Springfield (FMAS) mixer on Thursday, June 14, from 6-8:00 pm, at Missouri Spirits. It’s our vision to unify, educate and inspire the community and industry professionals through motion media arts. Help us kick off our efforts. Admission is free.

(As there will be booze on the premises, this event is only open to those 21 and up. Don’t worry. We’re an inclusive clan and have all sorts of events in the works for younger folks. Check our online calendar often, and follow the FMAS Facebook page, so you don’t miss out.)

The mixer is an opportunity for community members to learn about upcoming filmmaking education events, view equipment available for member use, sign up to volunteer, discover open leadership roles and meet industry professionals. FMAS was established to help people of all experience levels grow and showcase their production skills. After learning all about us, you’ll have the opportunity to join as well. New members will be able to sign up for one of three membership tiers: Professional, Student or Enthusiast. Choose what works for you.

As you mingle, view the work of current members. To our delight, this venue boasts a jumbo-sized screen sizable enough to make a movie lover swoon. It’s ideal for motion media viewing and registered members can submit their masterpieces to be aired during the mixer. Media may consist of a commercial, reel, short film and/or other original works, with a 5-minute maximum viewing time. Don’t delay. Spots are limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Delight your taste buds with tantalizing treats crafted by Missouri Spirits, courtesy of FMAS. Bring some extra pocket money for a soda, tea or frosty beverage. As Springfield’s first and only spirit house, Missouri Spirits claims to deliver “self-reliance and ingenuity you can taste. [They] refine Springfield’s brusque history of shootouts, vigilantes and whiskey payouts to the smooth finish of Ozark independence.” Who wouldn’t want to take a gulp? Even more exciting–the inventive Missouri Spirits crew is busy concocting a signature FMAS cocktail to unveil at the event.

Relax. Kick back. Take a ride on Missouri Spirits’ indoor porch swings. This social gathering is designed to be an enjoyable, low-pressure mingling experience. Have questions? Contact fmaspringfield@gmail.com for more information. See you there!
