The Seattle Film Summit is a professional development event for anyone in Washington who has a stake in the production or distribution of media content, including filmmakers, actors, video game creators, transmedia geeks, editors, media lawyers, film community leaders, legislators, gaffers and writers.

In 2015, the Seattle Film Summit brings together community partners from across local creative industries to present a day-long series of events focused on the continued evolution of film and digital media production in the region. This year’s presenting partners include: Washington FilmWorks, TheFilmSchool and DigiPen, Northwest Film Forum and Puget Sound Access, the Seattle Composers Alliance and the Seattle Film Institute.

Our Mission

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 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 week-long, participant-involved conference, attendees will address the tough questions of the local film business. Queries, findings and conclusions of the SFS will call 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.
