Like music and literature, film provides an immersive experience that can transport us to new places and perspectives. In following Seattle’s history on film, we can see both a documentation of how our built environment has changed, but also the ways in which narratives of Seattle have evolved, from early Hollywood features to local productions happening today. When looking behind-the-scenes, our experience of a film can be seen as a product of countless dedicated individuals along every stage of the process-from location scouts, advocates of our majestic theaters, and champions within creating spaces, and stories, that allow us to feel connected to a different time, location or person.

Yet Seattle’s film history is just as interesting when looking behind the camera as it is on screen. In this lecture, our panel explores Seattle’s relationship with film and the spaces which enhance our viewing experience.
