Seattle Film Summit is the BarCamp, the first of it’s kind in Seattle. What’s a BarCamp? A BarCamp is an ad-hoc un-conference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees. BarCamp began in the software community and has been adapted to the film community. A summary of the BarCamp model, rules and philosophy can be found at BarCamp.org.
Inspired by the success of Portland’s NW Film Center BarCamps, Evil Slave, in partnership with SIFF, is hosting the Seattle Film BarCamp. Like all BarCamps, rather than rely on outside experts, Seattle Film Barcamp draws upon our own expertise to learn and grow as film makers and develop a greater sense of community.

The process of BarCamp is simple: delegates meet in the morning and discuss which topics they want to cover in the breakout sessions and who would like to present them. The suggested topics and speakers are organized on the schedule board, and the breakout sessions begin.
