After-Set Film Program


Check in: 6PM - Screening: 7PM

Sex.   Scandal.  Soap.  It must be EMPIRE.  

EMPIRE, the Indie Soap Award winning web serial, returns in July 2012 for it's hottest season ever.  The new season was filmed primarily on location in the Hamptons and finds the Havens, Livelys and Reeds deeply entangled in a sinister murder mystery.  While the murder investigation goes on, secrets are revealed and new alliances are formed.  Desire, sex and even love will be discovered in the most unlikely places, but by the end lives will be forever changed and the three families will be rocked to their core.

About The After-Set Independent Film Program

The Program is operated on a weekly basis depending on availability on the screening room at Tribeca Grand Hotel. As a courtesy, we do not charge the filmmakers to screen their films and we allow them to showcase their work to their own audience. However, we do ask for an online admission to keep the program running and we give a weekly contribution to Healing The Children Northeast, an organization that helps doctors travel abroad and operate on children who need medical assistance. For more information please visit www.htcne.org. If you are a filmmaker and would like to screen your work with us, feel free to email us atnyc@after-set.com
