Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum’s ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. All doors in Northwest Film Forum are non-motorized, and may require staff assistance to open. Our upstairs workshop room is not wheelchair accessible.
We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. Also available at the front desk is a Sensory Kit you can borrow, which includes a Communication Card, noise-reducing headphones, and fidget toys.
The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject!
If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Patron Services Manager at email@example.com. Our phone number (206-329-2629) is voicemail-only, but we check it often.
Made possible due to a grant from Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, in partnership with Sensory Access, our Sensory Access document presents a visual and descriptive walk-through of the NWFF space. View it in advance of attending an in-person event at bit.ly/nwffsocialnarrativepdf, in order to prepare yourself for the experience.
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. We are not currently checking vaccination cards. Recent variants of COVID-19 readily infect and spread between individuals regardless of vaccination status.

Washington State Premiere!
(Julia Bacha, US, 2021, 73 min, in English)
When a news publisher in Arkansas, an attorney in Arizona, and a speech therapist in Texas are told they must choose between their jobs and their political beliefs, they launch legal battles that expose an attack on freedom of speech across 33 states in America.
Boycott traces the impact of state legislation designed to penalize individuals and companies that choose to boycott Israel due to its human rights record. A legal thriller with “accidental plaintiffs” at the center of the story, Boycott is a bracing look at the far-reaching implications of anti-boycott legislation and an inspiring tale of everyday Americans standing up to protect our rights in an age of shifting politics and threats to freedom of speech.

Soldiers and Reporters Hanging Out
(Rashad Saleh, US, 2021, 6 min, in English)
After the events of January 6, National Guard troops, international correspondents, and some curious civilians clutter the streets of Washington, D.C. In the absence of a catastrophe, they stand around and keep busy, ushering in a return to normalcy. Trailer >
The Revolutionary Cabinetmaker
(Rubén Hornillo, Spain & US, 2021, 23 min, in Spanish with English subtitles)
CW: violence depicted through audio, archival photographs of murdered bodies
The Revolutionary Cabinetmaker recounts the last days in the life of Enrique Hornillo, a Sevillian cabinetmaker and anarchist who was 26 years old at the time of the Spanish Coup of 1936. Like many of the residents of the Macarena neighborhood, he was a member of the armed resistance in the Macarena Gate and Plaza de San Marcos until the rebels took control of Seville. This documentary alternates the last moments in the life of Enrique, narrated by his nephew Luis, with interviews with three leading voices in Seville’s Collective Memory movement: community organizer Cecilio Gordillo, archeologist Elena Vera, and Gonzalo Acosta, coordinator of Todos (…) los nombres.
