The Day My Parents Became Cool
It’s always exciting to see a local film have lots of success at festivals across the country. It helps promote our city’s industry, represents Seattle to the rest of the US and encourages other local filmmakers to keep making their art. Steve Edmiston’s short film The Day My Parents Became Cool is one such success story. The film recently returned from New York (Brooklyn’s WilliFest) and continued its run around the regional film festival circuit this past month, including the Snohomish Carnegie International Film Festival (Best Film Grand Prize), Gig Harbor Film Festival (Best Short Film First Runner Up) and the Northwest Film Forum Local Sightings Festival. The 16-minute film has also been picked up for distribution as part of the new IndieFlix Film Festival in a Box program. To check out the film’s official site, follow the link! Congrats!

Sound on the Sound
The Black Whales commune with nature and capture the essence of Doe Bay with their vintage stylings in the final installment of this year’s “sessions.” Says Sound on the Sound: “[The band] was able to take the idea of doing sessions in the unconventional setting of Doe Bay and run with it, […] seizing the moment and setting the bar for next year. This is what we were thinking of when we cooked this idea up.” Check out the video, and be sure to catch the Black Whales November 5th at Columbia City Theater for their Ragged Bones release party.
