My name is Ella Meyers, and I’m a junior Sociology and Film & Media Studies double major at Whitman College. I have spent this past summer working as a Marketing & Communications intern at The Grand Cinema.
A Hasidic jew. A community college bio professor. A stolen pig. Join us for our next Science on Screen event pairing the film To Dust with a presentation by "dead" PA Naomi Grimminck on the topic: from biopsy to resection to results. Screens only on Monday, July 22 at 6:45pm.
Time flies! Just ten days ago, we held the 2nd ever 253 Film Summit on the UWT campus in partnership with UWT Film Club; the day before that, we took over Urban Grace for our annual 253 Short Film Party. Two weeks prior, three dozen local filmmaking teams were racing against a 72-hour clock to create short films... to be viewed and awarded at the 253 Short Film Party.
Who were the winners? Found out here!
Our celebration of local filmmaking has begun!
32 film crews competing in our annual 72 hour competition started their journeys on April 25 (follow along on the hashtag #253seconds). Their films will debut at the 253 Film Party May 10 and then, the very next day, we head to the University of Washington Tacoma to the 2nd annual 253 Film Summit.
We have five engaging sessions for our attendees to enjoy including a presentation from Washington Filmworks, a discussion about Tacoma Creates, and lunch with the Washington Lawyers for the Arts.
We’re also very excited about two new guests joining us this year: writer/director Megan Griffiths, and Manager of Research & Education for the Sundance Institute’s Creative Distribution Initiative, Jess Fuselier. Read on to learn more!
