The mission of the Seattle Film Summit is to empower and inspire Washington state media producers, especially filmmakers, to discover and develop innovative methods of storytelling, funding, and distribution. The input of every attendee is a valued contribution to the collective wisdom of the community. Our ultimate goal is a robust native media production industry that provides well-paying, stable jobs for Washington state residents.
The Seattle Film Summit is a conference for anyone in Washington who has a stake in the production or distribution of media content: filmmakers, actors, video game creators, transmedia geeks, editors, media lawyers, film community leaders, legislators, gaffers, writers—anyone and everyone.
During a day-long, participant-directed conference, attendees will address the tough questions of the local film business. Queries, findings and conclusions of the SFS will be compiled into a vivera carta—a living charter—that calls upon community, business and civic leaders to effect the change needed for professional media production to become a truly viable business model in our state.
