Puget Soundtrack is a series of live score commissions presented by Northwest Film Forum. The Film Forum invites musicians and bands to choose a film for which they would like to create and perform a live score. This gives musicians the artistic freedom to approach not only the performance with creative autonomy, but also to select films that inspire them musically. Past editions of Puget Soundtrack have included performances by: Kingdom of the Holy Sun, Vox Mod, Cabana, Newaxeyes, Cock & Swan, Tim Held and Dave West, and Ahamefule Oluo.
A core part of Northwest Film Forum's mission is to discover and champion the work of visionary filmmakers: join us as we bring an array of film artists and arts professionals to speak in person about new film, both on and off our screens.
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 too.
Northwest Film Forum partners with Longhouse Media to present this ongoing series showcasing emerging talents in indigenous communities. This exciting program exemplifies how Native American and indigenous filmmakers are at the forefront of the industry, successfully establishing a dialogue and creating images that are challenging and changing long established cultural attitudes towards indigenous culture.
