Originally founded as a filmmaker collective, Northwest Film Forum has long valued strong partnerships as foundational for serving the community.
Northwest Film Forum is a member of the Capitol Hill Arts District, the densest arts neighborhood in the State of Washington. Our neighborhood is home to 40 arts and cultural organizations. Partnerships across the region with peer cultural institutions, community groups, and companies are vital for many programs at the Forum.
Some of the organizations we regularly partner with on screenings, educational programs, and events include:
Earshot Jazz, Grand Illusion Cinema, Longhouse Media, Moving Image Preservation of Puget Sound (MIPoPS), Reel Grrls, Scarecrow Video, Seattle Composers Alliance, Seattle Documentary Association, Seattle University, SIFF, Social Justice Fund, Three Dollar Bill Cinema, The University of Washington-Bothell, and more.
We partner with the following local film festivals by hosting and co-presenting events:
Deaf Spotlight Film Festival, Seattle Asian American Film Festival, Seattle Latino Film Festival, Seattle Polish Film Festival, Seattle South Asian Film Festival, Seattle Web Fest, and TWIST Seattle Queer Film Festival.
