I’ve always had a soft spot for independent film. I grew up on movies and many of them were obscure, unusual, outside the norm. They helped me understand the diversity of creativity, of thought, in the human race. I’m thankful that those films informed my child- and young-adulthood, and that Pickford Film Center does its small part every day to continue that tradition–for me, and for my children.
It was my pleasure to write this Bellingham Experience Insider Blog about my community’s independent film theater, Pickford Film Center, for Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism because it is one of the many things that makes my city great. Its programs, films, and decisions are made locally, by a non-profit board, for the betterment of film, the community, and education.
Do take a look at my article and see how you can participate and support this Bellingham fixture and the noble ideals behind it.
