    I had a fantastic time at the Stareable screening. The organizers really care about the experience for creators, and it shows in the final product. The work screened was well curated, and the networking that followed was casual but productive. Highly recommend.

    This was an awesome screening! Really great to see my series on the big screen, AND have the ability to network with other creators. Stareable is #1!

    Stareable was very accommodating and offered a great way to screen your product then network afterwards. The staff was friendly and open minded to our feedback and followed up with placing your show on their website for their viewers to check out so your show isn't restricted to just their screening series. Definitely will be checking out their next screenings : )
