The Zombies Are Back - Z Nation Returns
Z Nation returns with season two!
Fans of the hit zombie show have certainly missed Doc, Murphy, and more as they attack their way across the unforgiving dystopian wasteland dodging brain-eaters left and right. Washington Filmworks is proud to support Z Nation through the production incentive program, as it has created hundreds of jobs and opportunities for Washington workers as well as boost the local economy. Benefiting everyone from caterers to truck services to hotel managers, the program is almost as powerfully contagious as the zombie apocalypse itself. Read more about the second season here.

Additionally, we have chosen to pick three unique festivals this season to highlight: the Port Townsend Film Festival, the Seattle South Asian Film Festival, and the Seattle Latino Film Festival. These three film festivals showcase stunning lineups, exciting events, and a diversity of both films and their audiences, bringing together communities through cinematic culture and flavor.
