In Her Hands
(Kay D. Ray, Seattle, WA, 2019, 66 min)
Women have been on the Jazz scene since the beginning, yet they are still fighting the same obstacles they were 20 and 50 years ago. In Her Hands explores the current issues and how women around the US are fighting for auditions, creating opportunities and being role models for young musicians today.
* In Her Hands is part of Northwest Film Forum’s Fiscal Sponsorship program, which helps film projects fundraise! *

Presented by Seattle’s Northwest Film Forum, the 22nd Annual Local Sightings Film Festival (September 20-29, 2019) showcases the growing complexity of creative communities in the Pacific Northwest. Its 2019 edition features a competitive selection of curated shorts and feature film programs, inviting regional artists to experiment, break, and remake popular conceptions around filmmaking and film exhibition.
Programmed closely with community partners as curators, the festival uplifts new talent, provides educational opportunities for youth and adults, supports the regional film industry, and promotes diverse media as a critical tool for public engagement.
