Inaugural Safety MeetingMore Info

 Security Crisis. Since the beginning of 2014, the International News Safety Institute reported 234 journalists have been killed in the line of duty and more than a 1,000 have lost their lives in the last decade reporting the news. Threats, intimidation and even the potential risk of injury are standard operating procedure for many journalists in the pursuit to investigate and tell the stories and preserve the public’s right to know. The safety of broadcasters and journalists is quickly changing. While many news agencies go to great lengths to protect their journalists abroad, particularly in war zones, more can and must be done to ensure the safety of our U.S.-based journalists.

As professional journalists and union members in Seattle we want to come together for a preliminary conversation about safety and security for broadcasters in our area. What are the current safety issues in the field, and what are some first steps we can take as a community of media professionals? This will be our inaugural meeting with the goal of creating a standing safety committee composed of members from SAG-AFTRA, IATSE and IBEW.

Please join James Fuda, a retired law enforcement officer of 33 years, SAG-AFTRA leaders and members on Wednesday, April 5 for our inaugural safety meeting. Be part of the conversation and help shape the security future of journalists in the Seattle market. We will have 2 meetings to accommodate members on all shifts. Food and drinks will be served.

SAG-AFTRA is Proud to Sponsor the Women+Film Festival Closing Night Screening of Sticky Notes – Sunday, April 9More Info

The Women+Film Festival will run from April 4-9 and showcase documentaries, narratives and short films celebrating the best in women-centric programming. The Festival includes panel discussions, in-person guests and receptions while highlighting thought-provoking, inspirational stories of women from around the world. The festival features Opening and Closing Night receptions and a VIP reception for filmmakers and pass-holders. The festival is a part of the Denver Film Society’s year round Women+Film program, which has a mission to promote films for, by and about women to engage with the audience, build community, educate and inspire.

The SAG-AFTRA Colorado Local and the SAG-AFTRA National Women’s Committee are co-sponsoring the Closing Night film,Sticky Notes, an American drama written and directed by Amanda Sharp. The film features Ray Liotta, Rose Leslie, Gina Rodriguez and Justin Bartha. Director Amanda Sharp will be at the screening in person. There’s also a closing night reception.

The film explores the story of Athena (Rose Leslie), a struggling dancer trying to make it in L.A. Athena's father Jack (Ray Liotta) interrupts her lonely and detached existence when he asks her to move home to Florida to care for him. Big news: he has cancer. Nursing Jack proves to be more and more challenging for Athena, so much that when she is called back to L.A for the greatest dance opportunity of her twenty-five years, she takes it. What follows is a heart-wrenching journey of growing up told with ample moments of humor and levity, candidly illuminating father/daughter relationships and bonds that despite being broken, always find their way back home.
