SEPTEMBER 2012 - JUNE 2013
The fourth annual edition of Live at the Film Forum presents a slate of world-premiere commissioned performances that reflect film's inherent collaborative energy and experimentation.
Live at the Film Forum continues the organization's long exploration of the intersection of cinema with performance. In 2012-13, the Film Forum invites theater artists, musicians, clowns, writers and actors to engage with film and video, incorporating elements of each craft into live performances and creating work that exists both on screen and off.
We offer one-of-a-kind experiences which are fresh and, as always, a little daring! Performers in the current year include UMO Ensemble, Luc Sante and Robin Holcomb.
Individual Tickets $12/Film Forum members, $15/General

If you love some music with your movies, mark your calendar for these upcoming screenings where the soundtrack is a character of its own. Films range from rare concert footage to forgotten musical features and tributes to iconic talents. Keep an eye out for special live music performances on our regular screening calendar.
Northwest Film Forum supports a sustainable Seattle! We encourage all movie-goers to carpool, take the bus, walk, bike, PoGo stick, or find their own eco-friendly way of getting to our cinemas. We present several events each quarter with localism and sustainability in mind.
