1st Annual Seattle Black Panther Party Film Festival
1st Annual Seattle Black Panther Film Festival, Feb 14-16 Ark Lodge Cinemas

SEATTLE-The First Annual Seattle Black Panther Film Festival will be held at the Ark Lodge Cinemas Feb 14-16 as part of Black History Month. Curator Billy X Jennings, archivist for the Black Panther Party alumni, has assembled a lineup of films rarely seen, especially not on the same screen.

The Seattle Black Panther chapter was the first Panther chapter organized outside of the State of California in April of 1968. The Seattle chapter was one of the Party's most active branches launching no less than 5 Free Breakfast for Children Programs and The Sydney Miller Medical Clinic still in operating today as the Carolyn Downs family Medical Center. To honor the ongoing Legacy of the Seattle BPP, the Seattle BPP Legacy Committee is presenting the 1st Annual Seattle BPP Film Festival. The films will cover a wide range of topics covering the Party over a 40 year period.

Films to be shown include:
"Lords of the Revolution" is a powerful and fast paced documentary featuring very rare footage of Panthers from Chicago, NY, LA, and elsewhere. The film features Bobby Seale, Elbert "Big Man" Howard, Emory Douglas, Ericka Huggins and many others.

"COINTELPRO 101" explains what COINTELPRO what it was, how it was used against the Panthers and other organizations. Hear from some of the victims of the government's secret program tell how the U. S. government murdered and arrested members of progressive movements in America.

"In The Land Of The Free" is a documentary about the Angola 3. Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, it features Robert King, one of the three Black Panthers known as The Angola 3 who were incarcerated at the Angola Prison in Louisiana.

The history and achievements of the Black Panther Party have been underrepresented in the history of the civil rights movement. The Panthers, founded in 1966 by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale in Oakland CA, quickly became the vanguard of not only the civil rights movement but the New Left and anti-war movement in the 60s and 70s. The Black Panthers ran free breakfast programs for children, free clinics including sickle cell testing, free clothing programs, drug & alcohol treatment, and transportation to upstate prisons for inmates' family members. Intelligent, dedicated, and passionate about the struggle they were engaged in, the Black Panthers impact continues to be felt around the world today.

A 3 hour block of films is $12, a Saturday Day Pass is $30, 2 Day Pass for Sat & Sun is $55, and a 3 Day Pass for the whole festival is $65.
