Local grass-roots film and art festival receives Neighborhood & Community Arts grant to support its seventh annual event.

SEATTLE – For the first time in the history of the Blue November MicroFilmFest, we have received a grant that will provide adequate funding, new opportunities and allow growth. As a result, we have expanded the Festival into three days as opposed to the normal two. It is our sincere intention to create the best event possible, moving forward with our mission, and bringing this event to as many people as possible.

The Seventh Annual Blue November MicroFilmFest is a totally free film and arts festival that supports the artist first and foremost, with a dedication to vision and artistic integrity in cinema, music and the arts. Designed for the true filmmaker and the art of film, this festival focuses on the people behind the creation. It is free to those who attend, and it is always free for the artists.

We highly encourage involvement from the local community, and invite anyone who submits an accepted film or artistic work to speak at the event. We are enthusiastically looking for local filmmakers, artists and musicians, as well as local small business owners, fellow not-for-profit organizations and neighborhood leaders.

The Call-for-Entries is open from April 6th until August 31st of 2009. All art forms are open for submission: poetry, dance, performance, music, art exhibition and film; we are searching for the overlooked and the unseen. The promotion of the artist remains a primary goal of Blue November.

The Neighborhood & Community Arts (NCA) program supports Seattle's neighborhood arts councils and community groups that produce events to promote arts and cultural participation and build community. In 2009, the program provided $1,200 each to 37 organizations to support annual public festivals and events. NCA supports neighborhood groups that produce recurring festivals or events that promote arts and cultural participation, build community and enhance the visibility of neighborhoods through arts and culture.

This coming November will mark a new chapter in the Festival’s history, as we look closer at our goals and perhaps find a new home. We will continue our support of local neighborhoods and people. This will bring focus and friendship; all we need now, is your participation and support!
