Forum Forever video debut: 💻👏😀 NWFF’s best moments of 2017!
“Northwest Film Forum presents a grand vision in an intimate setting. Within its small footprint, I enjoy great movies, kooky live performance, smart and funny talk shows and game shows, and the best damn popcorn in the city. Quite simply, I love this place.”
– Nancy Guppy, audience member
For nearly two and a half decades, artists and audiences have gathered at Northwest Film Forum for screenings, workshops, and community events. Countless creative collaborators have met each other here. Teens serve as jurors on Children’s Film Festival Seattle before leaving the nest for film school. Artists of all disciplines converge to share inspiration and get feedback. Years later, they tell us how these formative experiences drove them to make art and build community. Together they give strength to our vision: a world where all people have the power to express themselves and connect with each other through visual storytelling and culture.
We live in a divided time; human communication is increasingly strained by corporate interests that systematically separate us from each other. When you support a film and media organization that is uniquely poised to take action, expand access, and harness the power of film against intolerance, you are actively helping to bridge that divide.
Our daily work is about forging connections: through audience participation at political talk shows like The Seattle Process, to the tunes of local marimba, metal, and modular synth artists in the Puget Soundtrack live score series, and in intimate Q&A sessions with the dozens of artists who visit each year. In the last year alone, 25,000 people have visited the Forum for 400 screenings, events and workshops!
If you believe in the power of independent film as a vital common language that can help transform our world for the better, we need you to stand with us. Make a gift to Northwest Film Forum on this national day of giving to causes you believe in.
