Founded in 1995 by filmmakers Jamie Hook and Deborah Girdwood, Northwest Film Forum (NWFF) is a Seattle-based non-profit organization dedicated to becoming the nation's leading center for film artists. Operating the region's first and only non-profit center for the film arts, NWFF programs a true cinematheque, embracing film production as well as film exhibition, with two cinemas (46 and 120 seats), film production and post-production facilities and equipment, educational workshop space, filmmaker offices, a film vault containing over 1,000 titles, and a filmmaking library.
Nearly 1000 members strong, NWFF aides 250 filmmakers in the production of nearly 80 films, and offers more than 60 workshops annually. Our innovative Start-to-Finish grant program partners with a local artist to produce a feature length film, using both for and non-profit funding, a model unique in the non-profit world.
