Festival Seattle: The Blue November MicroFilmFest 2006

I am proud to announce that the Festival has officially secured a venue for this year's proceedings in the Greenwood District of North Seattle, at the Green Bean Coffee House! The date is set for Friday and Saturday, November 10th and 11th, from 7-10pm. The admission will be free, and the cost of entering or participating will be free as well.

This is a true coffee house. They serve their coffee in a mug! They also serve fair trade organic coffees, they support art and expression and community. They hold benefits for various causes and one such cause may be included in the Festival.

I had scheduled a meeting with the owner at 11:15am on this sunny Saturday, and Fae and I arrived, had a wonderful breakfast and met the owner. I presented my portfolio, we discussed the parameters of the Festival and she was very excited at she saw and heard. The feeling was mutual, as she explained the mission of the coffee house and their efforts thus far.

I will be programming the films soon, although there will not be any competition, so no awards will be made or presented this year.

Stay tuned for more developments.
