Community Storytelling [In-Person] Project


⚠️ Public safety notice ⚠️

NWFF patrons will be required to wear masks that cover both nose and mouth while in the building. Disposable masks are available at the door for those who need them. To be admitted, patrons ages 5+ will also be required to present either proof of COVID-19 vaccination OR a negative result from a COVID-19 test administered within the last 48 hours.

NWFF is adapting to evolving recommendations to protect the public from COVID-19. Read more about their policies regarding cleaning, masks, and capacity limitations here.

Duration: 2h 30m


We want to hear your story. What makes you feel welcome? Northwest Film Forum is working with Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods to help you share your story and building skills in filmmaking at the same time. Right now, the City and Sound Transit are planning for new light rail to go from West Seattle through Downtown to Ballard. It will be the biggest construction project to ever go through Seattle. The hope is that each station feels welcoming—feels like a real place for everyone. You can use the power of storytelling to help make these places yours.

This workshop is being rescheduled; email Derek at nwfilmforum dot org if you’re interested in it!

  • Session 1 – Knowing Your Power and Telling Your Story
  • Session 2 – Turning Ideas to Project Proposals
  • Session 3 – Write a Script From Your Proposal
  • Session 4 – Script Breakdown and Pre-Production

Following these workshops, the participants will work with Remove the Gap Production Apprentices to film each project.  Participants will need to be available for filming days in June.
