The festival comes to Seattle for 2007!
After a special screening at the Woodland Park Zoo on Thursday, March 29, the festival moves to the recently remodeled Kane Hall on the University of Washington campus. We’ll have three screening locations (including a 245-seat theater), information tables, space for workshops, and informal “livingroom” space for discussing films and enjoying refreshments.
The UW is highly accessible—including by bicycle and bus! Here are some map and travel aids:
- Google map (showing location of University of Washington)
- UW campus map (highlighting location of Kane Hall)
- Metro Trip Planner (excellent online bus route planner)
- UW bicycling info (with links to maps)
- Additional travel information (train, plane, car, etc.)
For accomodation near the University of Washington, see the list of hotels on the website of the Greater University Chamber of Commerce.
The College Inn is a European-style hotel with low rates right across the street from the University. The Silver Cloud Inn is offering their internet rate (even by phone) to festivalgoers (mention Hazel Wolf Environmental Film Festival).
Food and Drink
There will be some snacks available for purchase at Kane Hall, including water from Okanogan Highlands Bottling Co. (”Water More Precious than Gold”). Feel free to bring a sack lunch or dinner too for a quick meal on Red Square before heading back in to see more films.
There are several food options near Kane Hall. Closest is the Student Union Building (”the HUB”), where a sandwich place, a pizza place, and a salad place are open on weekends (as you leave Kane Hall, go left past the library). Or, go right and walk a couple blocks to University Way NE and find many restaurant options close by. See map.
