For this dress-up evening, Jolanda will serve an elegant sit-down meal of roasted chicken and steamed salmon with her famous “gala” chocolate cake for dessert.

The main event, of course, will be screening the top 10 entries in our 2017 Short Video Contest, with members in attendance selecting the first, second, and third-place winners.
