Visitors to signings at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery in recent years have doubtless encountered filmmakers Ron Austin and Louise Amandes documenting the proceedings. Join us tonight at Northwest Film Forum for the U. S. premiere of their movie Bezango, WA, which celebrates our region’s lively comix culture. The film features personalities like Peter Bagge, Ellen Forney, Gary Groth, Megan Kelso, Pat Moriarity, Jim Woodring, and many more. The 8:00 PM screening will be preceded by Local Sightings Book Fair at 6:00 PM including Intruder comix collective, Short Run, Fantagraphics Bookstore, Pity Party, Mend My Dress, and Cold Cube Press. NWFF is located at 1515 12th Avenue on Seattle’s Capitol Hill. Drop by and say hi.
