First Tuesday Salon, Starlight Room, Feb. 7, 7:30pm, Hidden Figures

hiddenWhat better way to begin Black History Month than with this inspired tale of three savants we meet for the first time in Hidden Figures. Nominated for multiple Oscars, director Ted Melfi brings us the brilliant women whose engineering, mathematics and computing ability, made NASA’s space program triumph. As Joe Morgenstern (Wall St. Journal) reminds us, “Hidden Figures brings us to the breaking of many barriers–space, race AND gender!” Here is a link to the actresses acceptance speech for “Best Ensemble” from The SAG Actors Guild: HERE.
See the trailer HERE.

Order your tickets early for our First Tuesday Salon screening and conversation with Professor Joseph Daccurso following.

Attend free screenings, Q&A with Emily Lindin, Director of The UnSlut Project, Feb. 6-10  

LindinWhen she was 11-years-old, Emily Lindin was labeled a “slut” by classmates and was bullied at school, after school, and online. During all this, she kept a diary. Now a Harvard graduate, author and recent PhD, Lindin began The UnSlut Project by blogging her own middle school diaries. This led to an online community, book, film and personal appearances on television and throughout the world. She’s coming to Port Townsend with her award-winning film, Unslut, Feb. 6-10, to visit classrooms and speak after three public screenings, thanks to over 10 community partner organizations. You can see her:

Mon., Feb. 6, 6:30 p.m., Bainbridge Island Museum of Art Auditorium, Winslow
Wed., Feb. 8, 6:30 p.m. Chimacum High School Auditorium
Thurs., Feb., 9, 7 p.m. Maier Performance Hall, Port Angeles  

You’ll Love Our PTFF Gala–Even if Your Invite Was a Mess. Sat., Feb. 25.

Now he’s bringing fellow actors from L.A. for a reprisal of Annie Baker’s 2010 Obie Award winning play, The Aliens, at Key City Public Theatre.

Oscars! Don’t we love them!

galaThis year we’ve moved our annual fundraising gala to the NIGHT BEFORE THE OSCARS, Sat., Feb. 25, at the NW Maritime Center. That’s so you can help support the Festival AND the next night, curl up in your pajamas and watch the broadcast on your comfortable couch.

The party will be much the same as in the past–with some new twists.

Returning is NPR and Live Wire Radio host, Luke Burbank and his sidekick, Carey. Their wit and love of PTFF will carry the night, along with John Ellis, from the improv/comedy troupe, “The Edge.”

We’ll be screening trailers and telling you the inside story of the nine films nominated by The Academy for Best Feature Film (and a host of other honors). (The person who correctly guesses the winners enters a chance to win a $900 membership to the Rose)!

And, instead of a silent auction, where just one person takes home the prize, everyone will win. We’re offering 20 exciting short trips you can sign up for at a fixed price. These include a tour of Heronswood Garden with Victoria O’Donnell, a tour of the Makah Reservation with travel writer Jan Halliday and a libations tour with designated driver, Janette Force. We’re also doing a dessert dash, and you know how great the bakers in this town are!

Doors open at 5 p.m. for live jazz, appetizers, and our legendary cocktails. Dinner at 6:30 and on with the show. Tickets $85 per person, please reserve your seat by calling 360-379-1333 or buy tickets online HERE.
