Where have all the events gone?

Where have all the events gone?

Last night at a post-holiday NY film industry cocktail party I got into a discussion about the current lack of industry events. When I started started in this industry there seemed to be a party, premiere, cocktail hour weekly or at least monthly. Those events, admittedly sometimes repetitive, helped form the backbone of a community. For a young assistant or even intern starting out you could meet everyone from fellow newcomers to heads of companies. With the economic downturn events became fewer and fewer. Or at least that’s how it seemed to a bunch of us standing around the Brooklyneer last night. What say you reader? Is there a shortage of events and networking opportunities? Inquiring minds want to know.
