The Independent Filmmakers Ball is back on a Tiki night special! Join us on an evening of live Hawaiian-style live act, networking and a fundraising raffle with special guests at the hottest party in town. Proceeds from the evening will go to the Independent Film Trust – a charity providing film training to those without the necessary means.
Taking place at the Café de Paris in the heart of London’s West End, the Ball will bring together 600 film industry professionals to raise money for charity, celebrate independent film, and just have a great party.
T&C* The Independent Filmmakers Ball is for over 18’s only.
On the music, get set to be blown away by DJ, singer and frontman NATTY BO & THE TOP CATS delivering a heavyweight fusion of Rhythm n’ Blues, 50s & 60s Rock n roll, Rockabilly, Cuban Mambo, Son Columbian Cumbia, Trinidadian Calypso 60s Soul, Hammond Organ grooves, Jamaican Ska, Rocksteady, Latin boogaloo + more! The perfect sound for a late night of good times good people!!
We’re really looking forward to working with Showtime Photo Booth, who will be bringing along their GIF photo booth to the Independent Filmmaker’s Ball. We’ll be sharing some of our favourite GIFs over social media, so keep an eye out! Check out their website for GIF photo booth hire in London.
