community of storytellers




About Us

The SEATTLE DOCUMENTARY ASSOCIATION strives to cultivate a community of high caliber non-fiction storytellers in the Pacific Northwest by:

·  Providing learning and growth opportunities for documentary filmmakers  

·  Fostering connections between novice and seasoned filmmakers

·  Strongly advocating the importance of documentary filmmaking

·  Supporting and promoting members’ film projects

We host events and activities throughout the year, including WIP (Works-In-Progress) screenings, an annual potluck, panel discussions, film festival screening co-presentations, and DocForest, a weekend retreat held outside of Seattle.  

SeaDoc deeply appreciates our partnership with Northwest Film Forum, where a majority of our events take place. Additional partners on special events include KCTS, the Sundance Institute’s Film Forward program, Kickstarter, Tasveer and Three Dollar Bill Cinema. 

Seattle Documentary Association- SeaDoc is fiscally sponsored by Shunpike. Shunpike is the 501(c)(3) non-profit agency that provides independent arts groups in Washington State with the services, resources, and opportunities they need to forge their own paths to sustainable success.
