Cinema Seattle. Presenter of the Seattle International Film Festival

The Screenwriters Salon is a public forum on the craft of screenwriting. We present panel discussions, programs and staged script readings for screenwriters and film enthusiasts alike who are encouraged to interact and openly discuss all manner of issues and topics on screenwriting and film, to creat a dialogue with local and national screenwriters as well as scholars, teachers, filmmakers, and critics.

Past program participants have included Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry), Sherman Alexie (Smoke Signals), Robinson Devor (The Woman Chaser), Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects), Randall Wallace (Braveheart), Stewart Stern (Rebel Without a Cause) and Jim Taylor (Election).
