Northwest Film Projects

    About Us

    Northwest Film Projects, Inc. is an e-film company involved in the the acquisition, development, and production of rural stories and documentaries for Theatrical, Television, Internet and DVD release.  We seek entertainment media projects that exalt themes of moral excellence, social responsibility, unselfish behavior, and respect for others (tolerance). We believe in the  power of stories to educate, uplift, and preserve cultural values.  Movies are more than mere popcorn, they teach values and reflect the behaviors of society.

    NFP is committed to bringing positive, enlightening messages to children, adolescents and adults through the visual arts. There is much literature citing the correlation between violent television and film images and aggressive behavior. In order to create media which addresses conflict resolution in lieu of weapons we need to nurture and support films which honor what is best in the human spirit.

    Northwest Film Projects, Inc. is currently looking for published Young Adult Fiction and True Life Young People Stories. Comedy also welcome. If you have such material and want to submit it please send us the following information: Log-line, Story summary (less than 100 words) and contact information. We also need to know page length, as well as when and where the Story was first published.  If your story is a novel or Bio book enclose the ISBN number. Stories from writers who have an agent or an entertainment attorney are preferred. Allow us 4-6 weeks to respond.

      Concept

      In 1998, seven years before You Tube, when Windows 98 was the standard O/S and a high speed modem was 56K, Northwest Film Projects founder C. Tad Devlin envisioned a day when everyone, not just three major networks and a half dozen film studios,would have access to visual media.  Media democracy was coming and with it, the need for media literacy, just as  Marshall McLuhen, the media guru of the mid sixties had predicted in his now famous book Understand Media:The Extensions of Man.

      Daffodils and Dahlias are not the only things that blossom in “The Immigrant Garden.” Self-discovery, tolerance, friendship, knowledge, and respect for others grow out of the correspondence between the gentle drama’s two main characters; young Cecily Barnes and 80-year-old Louise Beauchamp, the elderly woman with whom she exchanges letters. – Judy Panteleef, The Chronicle Premiere Review

      Realization

      In 2012, low cost high quality films are now a reality. Media Literacy programs are being taught in schools.  Common people have the ability to make their own movies, open their own virtual business, and record their lives on video for posterity and children. Grand-parents can make a living home video their great-great-grandchildren will see. And the whole world is watching.  Media is no longer a public relations tool for the super rich. The cell phone has gone smart. It leads us everywhere and everyplace.

        The destiny of the world is determined less by the battles that are lost and won than by the stories it loves and believes in.

          In 1998, my wife Diana and I decided to make a difference in our community – a place that had once been among the richest rural communities in Washingron State. Now, a place where 33 percent of adults are illiterate, 55 percent of young people live below the poverty line, and the average salary is near minimum wage. We wanted to help curb the community’s economic decline by providing young people with positive direction and marketable skills by involving them in the world of art and digital technology. We believed that students bored with tradition classroom learning might embrace a …
