Miss us? We know you did. Happy Hour returns this week with a new look and format. Now the Film, Music and Interactive Happy Hour, we will continue to host our event at Spitfire in Belltown on the last Wednesday of the month from 5-7 pm. At 6:30 pm, a special guest speaker will give a presentation in the private black box theater in the back of the venue. This Wednesday, we welcome UW Associate Professor Margaret O’Mara, who wrote the tech-focused book Cities of Knowledge: Cold War Science and the Search for the Next Silicon Valley. For those who want to continue mingling at the bar, we’ll broadcast the presentation on the monitors located throughout Spitfire. Join us on Wednesday, September 28 for the exciting re-launch of Happy Hour! Presenting partners of this event are Washington Filmworks, The Pacific Northwest Chapter of The Recording Academy, Geekwire, Art of Institute of Seattle, and Spitfire.
Seattle Office of Film + Music
Seattle has been a growing hub for film, music and digital media over the past several years, and it is vital for these three communities to interact for our city to continue to thrive. The monthly Happy Hour offers just such an environment for people from these industries to socialize, network and build a unified community. Join us for Happy Hour tonight from 5:00 – 7:00 at Spitfire in Belltown. See you there, Seattle!

Seattle has been a growing hub for film, music and digital media over the past several years, and it is vital for these three communities to interact for our city to continue to thrive. This Happy Hour offers just such an environment for people from these industries to socialize, network, and build a unified community.
The Happy Hour averages an attendance of 150-200 people each month. While this offers a great opportunity to meet and network with such a vibrant community, it can also seem daunting.

Happy Hour is hosted at the Spitfire Lounge, located at 2219 4th Avenue in Belltown (between Blanchard and Bell). There will be Happy Hour priced drinks and snacks available.

Join Washington Filmworks in celebrating Hollywood’s biggest night of the year while also helping to support a great cause! Next Sunday, February 27, Filmworks is hosting an Oscar viewing party and benefit for local film at Spitfire in Belltown. A $10 event donation enters you into the “Oscar Pool,” where you can cast your own personal ballot to predict the big winners at the 83rd annual Academy Awards. All proceeds from the night will go to a Seattle-area arts organization to be selected by the victor of the “Oscar Pool” ballot race. Last year, this event raised over $1,000! Doors open for the party at 4:00 pm and ballots will not be accepted after 5:15pm, so be sure to get there early.
