It's back! By popular demand, the Tubefilter Meetup is hitting up Los Angeles with at least one event every quarter in 2017.
We're incredibly excited and looking forward to once again playing host to YouTube stars big and small, aspiring and established digital media creators, enterprising entrepreneurs, entertainment industry executives, advertisers, and brand representatives as we all evaluate, critique, and navigate the ever-changing new media landscape among friends, acquaintances, and business associates old and new.

Original series creator Joel Hodgson is involved in the revival as well, but most of the cast will consist of newcomers. Nerdist’s Jonah Ray will star as a man who, accompanied by a pair of chatty robots, is forced to watch the B-movies in question. Felicia Day, of The Guild and Geek & Sundry fame, »
