Festival - Local Sightings Film Festival 2021: Special Events
At this years Local Sightings Film Festival, Moving Image Preservation of Puget Sound (MIPoPS) will present their first in-person archival screening since February 2020.
Working with materials from Seattle Municipal Archives, they came across a piece of Seattle film history: videotape records of the Seattle City Council Film Forum, an initiative spearheaded by Nick Licata to share the work of Seattle-area filmmakers with the Housing, Human Services, Health and Culture Committee. SCC Film Forum presentations were curated by former NWFF Program Director Adam Sekuler. MIPoPSs screening will highlight content from these presentations, the Seattle Channels Seattle Cine-visions series, and a grab-bag of additional local film ephemera from other institutions including, of course, Northwest Film Forums own vault.
Walk down recent-memory lane with MIPoPS archivists at this in-person celebration of local filmmakers and Pacific Northwest creativity!

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is 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.
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 Executive Director Vivian Hua at email@example.com
