Seattle Growth Podcast 6.11: Building community among filmmakers and film lovers

Seattle is a city of cinephiles. And film lovers and film makers, like other affinity groups, tend to seek each other out.

Season six of the Seattle Growth Podcast continues its exploration of the myriad communities that have formed as the city grows and changes. Episode 11 introduces communities built around the movies.

Vivian Hua, a local writer, filmmaker and organizer, offers insight into the Seattle filmmaking scene. Hua is co-founder of The Seventh Art Stand, former editor-in-chief of the music and arts journal REDEFINE, and currently serves as executive director of Northwest Film Forum.

Northwest Film Forum is a nonprofit film and arts center and a hub of Seattle’s film community. It hosts the Local Sightings Film Festival, bringing together industry professionals, artists and a diverse group of community members, from September 20-29.
