NORTHWEST FILMMAKERS’ UN-CONFERENCE
The Northwest region is brimming with filmmaking talent and expertise—and the Filmmakers’ Un-conference provides an opportunity for these makers to come together and share their own ideas and inspiration. The Un-conference is unique in that it is largely user-organized: participants suggest the topics, make the schedule and lead the discussions. It’s a dizzying carnival of practical breakout sessions where novice filmmakers might meet their next collaborators and accomplished filmmakers might meet their inspiration. Thanks to KIND Healthy Snacks for providing breakfast snacks and to Chipotle for providing lunch vouchers. Contact Festival Manager Thomas Phillipson at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. ADMISSION $10.
WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
Each year the Festival selects roughly ten percent of the films submitted for public screening—but what about the other 90%? We value all those who enter their films, so we offer each filmmaker two tickets to the Festival, an invitation to participate in the Filmmakers’ Un-conference, and an opportunity to have Seattle film guru Warren Etheredge watch a few minutes of their work and offer his experienced and brutally honest take on what is and what isn’t working—all with the participation of a live audience. Part game show, part master class, What's Wrong with this Picture? has included short films from beginners and pros (plus at least one Oscar winner), and has become an audience favorite for Etheredge’s often hilarious commentary and his spot-on insight. Come join the fun. FREE ADMISSION.
