NWFF's 2007 Online Auction is open for bidding and it's chock full of
AMAZING deals!
Take a gander and be wowed by the list of filmmaking services we are
selling on ebay to
raise money for Northwest Film Forum's annual fund. All bids are
starting at a fraction of the value;
  we have over $19,000 worth of items starting at $4,000!

Though there are some items up for bid that are Seattle-centric,
there are almost as many that can be utilized around the country or,
at the very least, that will justify a trip to New York.
These are items that are perfect for filmmakers if you know any, or
filmmakers who you may have met at a local event.

For example, here are a few items that you can bid on:
1) ˝ hour pitch with renowned producer Peter Newman.
He has produced movies like The Squid and the Whale, Smoke, The
Secret of Roan Inish, and the TV show Grey’s Anatomy.
The winner will have to meet him in New York.

2) One hour meeting with New York film producer Scott Macaulay.
Another New York prize, the winner can get advice from the producer
of Raising Victor Vargas, Idlewilde, Gummo and Julien Donkey Boy.
  He’s also the editor of Filmmaker Magazine, so you can talk about
film writing if you want to.

3) One hour meeting with New York casting director Adrienne Stern.
This one also takes place in New York, where you can talk about
creating a plan to cast your film,
or ask her about her connections to Sundance.

4) Three hours of feature fundraising and budget advice from cult
filmmaker Jon Moritsugu.
He lives somewhere around Seattle, so the meeting would probably be
here or maybe in L.A.
He’s made a handful of underground features and is in a position to
give some good advice.

Other auction items include meeting with Academy Award-nominated
documentary filmmaker James Longley (Iraq in Fragments) and a meeting
with the Seattle International Film Festival’s Artistic Director Carl
Spence to talk about festival strategies, poster designs, production
budget consultations, and a whole lot of other stuff.

Here's where you can find all the auction items:
