A Memorial for Lynn Shelton

Fri, Aug 28, 2020 at 6pm

This event has passed.

After the award-winning filmmaker Lynn Shelton passed away earlier this year, there was no public memorial for family, friends, and fans of her work to gather together and celebrate her life.

No artist had a more profound impact on the Seattle filmmaking world over the last two decades, and just about everyone in the local scene has a story about her.

On August 28 at 6 pm Pacific, artists, family members, friends, fans, colleagues, and film critics will gather together on Zoom to share stories about Lynn's life and perspectives about her work. This event is organized by The Stranger, and 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Shelton/Seal Family Fund at Northwest School for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children.

This memorial will feature storytelling and commentary by Megan Griffiths, Kevin Seal, Ben Gibbard, Tomo Nakayama, Sean Nelson, Charles Mudede, Annie Wagner, Lori Goldston, and others. We invite your stories and remembrances as well.
