Exciting announcements from Northwest Film Forum!
It’s been a very busy summer.
- Today we launched a beautiful, user-friendly new website featuring a filterable events calendar. Even the font is cinematic – GT Cinetype is a design engineered for a cinema subtitling machine that uses a laser to selectively erase the color layer of the film to make brilliantly white letters.
