Seattle has a way of elevating the different, the underrepresented, and the unconventional. This film celebrates the city’s spirit of inclusion. In her #LoveLetterToSeattle, our third Seattle Story Award winner – Lael Rogers – channels her belief that the things that make us different, are exactly the things that make people feel at home here in Seattle. It’s a city that’s ready to embrace the claw in all of us.
Lael brings a fresh female perspective to filmmaking and has a history of transforming people through rich stories. Premiered with Film Independent and Rolling Stone at an event in New York City, this film not only oozes Seattle flavor, but delivers a simple human message at its heart.
