Post Alley Film Festival is presented by Women in Film Seattle and was originally the brainchild of former Pike Place Market marketing director, Andrew Krueger. With the help of filmmaker Virginia Bogert, (www.laughingdogpictures.com), President Emerita of Women in Film Seattle, Krueger launched the one-day festival of shorts in 2003 at the Market Theater to raise funds for Pike Market Preschool. In 2005 Bogert proposed that WIF Seattle sponsor the event.
The festival quickly became a showcase for emerging and established filmmakers and focused on a wide variety of homegrown and international short films. Post Alley Film Festival is not restricted to screening only women’s work but it is a venue for female perspectives and it encourages film submissions focusing on female subject matter. Films at PAFF range from drama to documentary - experimental, archival, narrative, and animation. The festival welcomes submissions from beyond the Evergreen state and the U.S. borders.
Post Alley Film Festival is small, therefore judging is very selective. Some films are solicited by the curator, others are selected by recommendation from a review panel of film industry professionals. The festival screens approximately two dozen hand-picked short films ranging from
3 to 25 minutes in length.
PAFF provides excellent thought-provoking film that entertains and challenges. Films can be brand new, multiple award-winning, or have been around many years and deserve an appreciative audience again. Post Alley Film Festival seeks the intriguing, the wacky, the bold, and applauds classic, elegant filmmaking. This is an Indy town and movies are our passion.
