To elevate the City of Seattle's appreciation of the arts in general and of cinema in particular, Nick instituted "Film Forum," a bi-monthly screening during his Council committee meetings of film excerpts from local filmmakers. A programmer is selected to choose the films and manage the screenings. Each film excerpt must in some way relate to topics addressed by the work of the City Council.
"This (film) was the result
of staying up late at night
and being either amused
or irritated with the worst bar
on Capitol Hill."
- Webster Cowell,
"Last Call" Filmmaker
Film Forum screenings run three minutes or less and serve as the first order of business for the Committee. Filmmakers are seated at the Council Committee table, introduced and accompanied by the programmer.
