NOW PLAYING: “25 NEW FACES” SCREENING SERIES AT TACOMA’S GRAND CINEMA
Last week in the Filmmaker newsletter, I mentioned the wonderful “25 New Faces” screening series which has run annually at The Grand Cinema in Tacoma, Washington, since 2010. During that time, under the loving stewardship of the Grand’s Executive Director Philip Cowan, it has continued to grow and thrive, and this year 20 of the 25 New Faces will be in Tacoma, attending the 2012 series (running August 17 to 23) with their work — and meeting each other for the first time.
I’m very sad that I’m not able to be there this week, as the series represents a phenomenal gathering together of great films and filmmakers that we are extremely passionate about at Filmmaker. However, hopefully readers in the greater Seattle area will take the opportunity to attend, and then share your experiences in the comments section below. Cowan, who is arguably the biggest champion of the “25 New Faces” outside of the Filmmaker offices, will be taking photos over the course of the happening over the course of this week at the Grand and has promised to send them to me, so look out for those on the blog.
