The Official Best of Fest
After a brief hiatus, Official Best of Fest is back with a new crop of the world’s finest shorts and independent films! In this Saturday’s all-new episode, hosts Rick Stevenson and Dr. Brandon Whitehead (aka the silent critic) give viewers a lesson in perspective with Jillian’s Vantage, a 23-minute short about a man who gets set up on a blind date with a blind woman. Official Best of Fest, a 30-part KCTS series, is produced by a Seattle-based team, and seeks to bring the “best films you’ve never seen” to the local airwaves every week. New episodes are broadcast Saturdays at 7:30 pm on KCTS 9. For more on the series, follow the above link.

TheFilmSchool
Founded in 2004 by prestigious filmmakers Jacob Jacobsen, Tom Skerrit and Rick Stevenson and screenwriter Stewart Stern, TheFilmSchool has since been an integral resource for Seattle citizens’ film education. TheFilmSchool is dedicated to their mission of elevating the art of cinematic storytelling through intensive training in screenwriting and directing. The school hosts insightful workshops and lectures with film industry experts and heroes, the majority of which are free and open to the public.
