The Seattle Public Library hosts Teen Created Film Festival on March 5
See short films created by some of Seattle’s finest young talent at the Teen Created Film Festival from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, March 5 at The Seattle Public Library, Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Microsoft Auditorium, Level 1.
The program is free and open to the public. No registration is required. Parking will be available in the Central Library garage for a $5 special event rate. The Fourth Ave. entrance will open at 6:15 p.m. No late seating after 6:45 p.m.
Films will include submissions from teens involved with the Northwest Film Forum, The Center School, Reel Grrls and 911 Seattle Media Arts Center. A Q&A with featured filmmakers will take place following the film screening.
The Northwest Film Forum is Seattle’s premier film arts organization, screening over 200 independently made and classic films annually, offering a year-round schedule of filmmaking classes, and supporting filmmakers at all stages of their careers.
The Center School is an arts-focused public high school located in the heart of Seattle. “Teen films are great to see because teenagers have so much energy and passion that they channel into their films” said Center School filmmaker Sam Bender. “They don’t care about trying to appeal to demographics or making expensive productions, they just want to make something to express themselves or tell a story.”
Seattle-based Reel Grrls is the first all-girl year round media program empowering teen girls from diverse communities to realize their power, talent, and influence through media production. Reel Grrls participants learn to critique media images, gain video production skills, and consistently win accolades from film festivals worldwide.
911 Seattle Media Arts Center is a non-profit media center supporting the creative use of media for communication and art making. 911 Seattle Media Arts Center’s youth classes put the power of digital media technology in the hands of tomorrow’s artists, filmmakers and media producers.
The film festival is presented by The Seattle Public Library in partnership with the Northwest Film Forum, The Center School, Reel Grrls and 911 Seattle Media Arts Center.
