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 for the importance of documentary filmmaking

·  Supporting and promoting members’ film projects

We host events and activities throughout the year, including Nights Out, WIP (Works-In-Progress) screenings, the Annual Potluck Bash, and DocForest, a weekend retreat held in September.  We have partnered on special events with KCTS, the Northwest Film Forum and the Sundance Institute’s Film Forward program. Hazel Wolf Environmental Film Network has been our fiscal sponsor since 2014, to provide support for SeaDoc events and programs.
