Jul 17, 2020

[11 mins. 4 secs.] Friends of Lynn Shelton grace the podcast to share their memories and feelings about the filmmaker who died unexpectedly on May 16th of a blood disorder. Guests include the cinematographer & filmmaker Ben Kasulke, filmmaker Megan Griffiths, and actor & filmmaker Joshua Leonard. All share in long friendships with Lynn, a passion for storytelling, and past appearances on this podcast. To honor Lynn's legacy, Seattle’s Northwest Film Forum, alongside Duplass Brothers Productions, are launching the Lynn Shelton “Of a Certain Age” Grant. The $25,000 unrestricted cash grant will be awarded each year to a US-based woman or non-binary filmmaker, age 39 or older, who has yet to direct a narrative feature. For those looking to give in her honor, donations to the Shelton/Seal Family Fund for the Northwest School for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children, or Seattle’s Northwest Film Forum are encouraged.
