Today I had intended to post a link to Lynn Shelton's Seattle music series $5 COVER (in keeping with the April 4th broadcast of music doc WELCOME TO DOE BAY). I watched this series when I moved to the city three years ago, and from the first episode, I could not stop buzzing with excitement. I was living in a city with all of these creative minds? And would have opportunities aplenty to see this sort of amazing music live?? It seemed too good to be true.

Reel NW brings you the very best in independent films from or about the Northwest. But even with an extensive lineup, there will always be film projects we love, but are unable to include in the series. We aim to make this blog a place where we can go beyond the films we broadcast and/or stream. Visit the Reel NW Blog to learn about regional productions that we feel are compelling and worth checking out.
