Arts The Film Company
There’s a rumor in the air about The Film Company, a local for-profit which produced Guy Maddin’s The Brand Upon The Brain (a feature film that’s to have its gala premier at the Toronto International Film Festival), and also produced Lynn Shelton’s critically acclaimed We Go Way Back (a feature film picked up by Cyan Pictures and opens at the end of September). The rumor is that The Film Company is leaving Seattle. To where? To New York City. Rumor has it that the reason for the move is purely financial. If the rumors are true, news of the departure will be made public Thursday, July 6 (5:30 - 6:45 pm) at the Northwest Film Forum.
