The Seattle-based Northwest Film Forum, which has nearly 1,000 members, is a non-profit center dedicated to the film arts. The NWFF facilitates both film production and exhibition with its two intimate cinemas, a film vault loaded with more than 1,000 movies, production and post-production equipment and facilities, offices for filmmakers, educational workshop space, and a filmmaking library.
Each year the Northwest Film Forum helps 250 filmmakers produce approximately 80 movies, some of which have gone on to appear in renowned festivals like Sundance. The NWFF hosts classes, lectures, workshops, and distinguished visiting artists, and it screens fine independent and international films almost every day of the year.
