Looking for event, rigging, stagebuilding work.

So this November I worked on some freelance event gigs throughout NYC-- it was similar to the film production work I'm looking to get into, required some related skills and I worked alongside some people with experience in the film industry. I've been looking high and low for similar work-- stage building, rigging, that sort of thing.
Following that seasonal gig, I tried to look on Craigslist, Indeed, even Mandy for related event work but was lost-- despite the fact that I'd worked with people who seemed to imply that they'd found event work through similar avenues.

Just for some clarification as to what I mean by event work:
The gig I worked involved building and rigging decorative displays, a small amount of electric involved, working lifts and making sure things were aesthetically pleasing.
And one other job I found out about and applied to was a company that builds stages and backdrops using pipes and curtains for various events in the area.
