Where the House Was
(Ryan K. Adams, Seattle, WA, 2018)
Where the House Was is a documentary about quickly changing cities. When news breaks that a long-standing Seattle literary institution, the Richard Hugo House, may be torn down to make way for a mixed-use apartment building, the then Executive Director Frances McCue decides to capture what made the place so special. What emerges is a new model for sustaining the arts through long-term cultural space preservation.

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.
