SMXL Communities

Our superpower is our relationship with a diverse spectrum of media artists and technicians. SMXL partners are leaders in the independent film community, and we strive to continually generate opportunities to create together.


Founded by SMXL Partner Stacie Capone in 2014, the FilmmakeHers is a monthly salon featuring leading industry guests and mentors, film, television, and digital content creators, with chapters in New York & Los Angeles that have brought artists together in collaboration and expansion.

Filmshop is a tight-knit group of independent filmmakers who are committed to help one another develop projects, and build careers. Filmshop has chapters in New York, New Orleans, and Los Angeles. A longtime Filmshop NYC chapter leader, SMXL Partner Don Downie founded Filmshop LA in 2020.
