PHOTO BOOTH: Holiday Hurrah Hosted by Chicago Acting in Film Meetup

Raffle prizes, auction items, a $1,000 grand prize, and awards for the most creative holiday attire were all on tap as the Chicago Acting In Film Meetup NFP (CAFM) wrapped up 2022 with a film industry party, fundraiser, and networking night. The 14th Annual CAFM Holiday Hurrah happened Monday, December 12th at Carbon Arc Bar & Board in Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood.

Since 2007, CAFM has helped Chicago’s film actors co-mentor each other and connect with the film production community at large. Along with their members-only monthly educational events, they have held public and industry events including Summer Socials, CIMMFest panels, and an Actors Clothing Swap.  They have hosted the Chicago Creatives Cocktail Party (CCCP) “Happy Hours” events and the A.C.E. (Arts, Culture, and Entertainment) event at The Underground with Billy Dec, and sponsored tables at the IFA Block Party and the 2022 CAST Convention.  The group has also volunteered with Church of Our Saviour’s Food For Friends program, and raised funds for other nonprofit charities including Care for Real, Hephzibah Children’s Association, Peace On Earth Film Festival, and The Woolgathering Project.
