Call for entries reminder – Concert Film Challenge & Local Sightings


Film ChallengeSubmit Your Work to the Concert Film Challenge

Screening is May 18 at 8pm
Deadline is May 4

Seattle is a haven for live music, and Northwest Film Forum is the home for many concert films that pass through our city. This quarter alone we screened films featuring Leonard Cohen’s performance at the Isle of Wight, the White Stripes tour through Canada, and a Bill Withers doc that includes plenty of concert footage.

To honor our musical heritage, this quarter we ask local filmmakers to turn their eyes on the music scene and make concert films no longer than 5 minutes for the Concert Film Challenge. Since we expect the response for the challenge to surpass previous challenges, we reserve the right to curate this program, and possibly host multiple screening dates and times.

The project is open to all levels of skills and experience. Send submissions to: Northwest Film Forum, c/o Adam Sekuler, 1515 12th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122. For more information email Adam Sekuler at Formats: 35mm, 16mm, super-8, digiBETA, BETA SP, DVCAM, and DVD. Please Include title, filmmaker’s name and contact info with submission.


Tickets to the screening are $6/NWFF members, $6.50/seniors, $9/non-members
