You're not going to see any studio tent poles opening up at this movie house...and that's a good thing. Thoughtful and engaging, this is where you go to see some of the best indie films being produced today. They also offer up plenty of hands-on classes for your inner budding filmmaker.
This duplex throws contemporary and classic independent films from across the world. They also offer an extensive number of meet the director sessions, technical seminars on filmmaking and cinema literacy as well as having production facilities and equipment available for rent.
Don't miss the incredible members only dance parties and the curry seasoned popcorn!
A Place For The Small Films – The Northwest Film Forum thankfully brings the small movies to town and not just blockbuster hits that can get redundant.
For Instance I have been looking forward to seeing this documentary about a San Franciscan Pastor wanting to make a film titled "GRAVITY: THE SHADOW OF JOSEPH", a biblical science fiction movie.
The documentary is titled "AUDIENCE OF ONE".
I read a review by Paul Constant from The Stranger this morning and am now even more excited.
BY: PAUL CONSTANT
"This is one of those rare cases of a documentary director finding exactly the right subject at exactly the right time: Jacobs’s first documentary is about an evangelical preacher named Richard Gazowsky who’s trying to direct a science-fiction retelling of the story of Joseph. Virtually everything about this documentary, from a quietly disgusted aside by Gazowsky’s mother to the enthusiasm of his churchgoers as they try to make a big-budget blockbuster with no actual moviemaking knowledge or experience, is a perfectly entertaining study in awkwardness. Gazowsky’s utter confidence that God has chosen him to be a mixture of George Lucas and John the Baptist is truly shocking, and the first time I saw Audience’s climactic scene, my jaw literally dropped in horror when I realized exactly how looney-tunes his faith had made him."
Thank You, Northwest Film Forum for bringing the obscure and unknown to our attention!
