Meet the Programmers at SIFF

Film Festival Alliance invites attending SIFF and regional filmmakers to a candid Meet the Programmers discussion with film festival programmers from across the country, on Sunday, May 27th from 12:00pm-1:30pm, hosted by the Northwest Film Forum.

This moderated session is designed to create an open dialogue intended to increase transparency between filmmakers and festivals – demystifying the festival programming process and giving filmmakers an inside look at the people behind the screen. This is also an opportunity for filmmakers to share stories and insights about their festival experiences – from submissions to notifications, screenings and more.

The event is free, but space is limited. Follow the link to get signed up!
