Joanna interviews Peter Simpson, Artistic Director of the 9th Annual Port Townsend Film Festival in Washington. Peter was part of the organizing committee of film lovers who decided to form their own film festival modeled after the popular Telluride, CO festival. In 1999, Rocky Friedman, a highly respected local film lover who restored and operates Washington’s only remaining nickelodeon, was joined by Jim Ewing, Jim Westall, Linda Marie Yakush, a five-person operating committee – that included Peter – and more than 200 volunteers to form the Port Townsend Film Festival, a grand community effort that celebrates great films and filmmakers.
