Will your project be screening at this year's LA Film Festival, Sept. 20-28th? We're here to support YOU, and Harvardwood members are always able to share info about upcoming screenings or other events to the Harvardwood Heads To... calendar.
Aligned with the mission of Harvardwood, the purpose of the Pacific Northwest Chapter of Harvardwood is to bring together Harvard alumni and affiliates working in arts, entertainment, and media to build a supportive community of like-minded folks.
Now through September 15, 2018, we're administering a short survey (3-5 minutes) for PNW-based members to inform our events and programming in the upcoming year as we revive the chapter.Read more
DC-area residents, we need YOUR assistance! Harvardwood is eager to bring more events to our DC members, but in order to do so, we need access to free or affordable venues.
If you live in or familiar with the DC area and can hook us up with such a space, please email us. Examples of good spaces are: the conference room of a law firm; small theaters or screening rooms; the private room at a restaurant, bar, wine bar, etc.; classrooms at a community college or local school; the community room of a public library; art galleries... get creative, we're open!Read more
