Issaquah Sustainability Film Shorts
Issaquah's Office of Sustainability will be showing the two final films from its first Sustainability Film Shorts contest from noon-3 p.m. Sept. 15 at the Front Stage Theatre, 120 Front Street North.
The two films were a response to the City's call for film made, produced and directed by students that answered the question: What does sustainability mean to you?
Student filmmakers will present their films, get the chance to see them on the big screen and take part in a panel answering audience questions about their inspiration and process. As an extra special guest to this event, the City is excited to have local filmmaker John de Graaf join the students to talk about his filmmaking and the role of films in environmental advocacy.
John de Graaf is a celebrated local filmmaker who has worked with KCTSTV as an independent producer of television documentaries for the last 30 years. John has won more than 100 regional, national and international awards for filmmaking, including three Emmys. He is the founder of the Hazel Wolf Environmental Film Festival, and has taught documentary film production at the University of Washington, The Evergreen State College and the Boston University Center for Digital Imaging Arts. An award named in his honor, The de Graaf Environmental Filmmaking Award, is presented annually at the Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival in Nevada City, California.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive at noon to visit with local environmental and nonprofit partners in the lobby, and enjoy a snack prior to the event. Everyone attending the event will receive a gift, and door prizes will also be available.
