iW NEWS | Seattle Launches Production Summit

The Seattle International Film Festival, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Film + Music, WashingtonFilmWorks and the Washington State Film Office, is launching the First Annual Northwest Production Summit during the 2008 Festival. It will be held this weekend (June 12-15), and is designed to help secure the position of SIFF and Washington State as an industry destination. The Summit event has three components: A special invite-only three-day symposium event with some of the nation’s top independent film professionals; An IFP/Seattle mentorship program; Three specialized panel events – “Show Me the Money,” “So You Want to Be a Producer,” and “Pitch Slam.” “The weekend activities showcase the best of our locations, talent and infrastructure,” said Lindsey Johnson, interim Manager of the Washington State Film Office, in a statement. “Our objective with the Summit is to personalize the VIP experience so that our filmmaking guests have a deeper understanding of the vibrant creative community that defines Washington State.” The Seattle International Film Festival is currently ongoing, and runs through June 15.
