Adam Sekular is the program director for Seattle’s Northwest Film Forum. The NWFF, just like the NWFC, is not only an educational and exhibition resource, it is also an active participant in championing international cinema that has not found commercial distribution.
Adam will be in town this week to present two screenings and a workshop. Continue for details…
Pedro’s Costa’s Ne Change Rien (No Change), and Oliver Laxe’s You Are All Captains. Ne Change Rien, Costa’s 9th feature, is a dreamlike meditation on the process of creating music. Laxe’s You Are All Captains is a mysterious and whimsical story about a “neo-colonist” filmmaker who goes to Tangier to hold a series of workshops for disadvantaged street children, but has ulterior motives for his own film.
NE CHANGE RIEN plays July 13, Fri 7PM and July 15, Sun at 5PM
YOU ARE ALL CAPTAINS plays July 14, SAT 7PM and July 15, SUN at 7:30PM

In addition to presenting the films, Adam Sekuler will discuss the effort to locate American audiences and will also hold a workshop on alternate avenues for independent distribution, DEMYSTIFYING DISTRIBUTION, on Saturday, July 14. The course offers behind-the-scenes insights on how to plan and apply realistic solutions to properly promote and market your film to the largest audiences possible. Actual Case studies will reveal how the worlds of film festivals and publicity have played out with different films and how the network of North American Film organizations fits in today’s changing theatrical landscape.
