"Off Label" Is First Recipient of Northwest Film Fund

Northwest Film Forum has announced that “Off Label,” a documentary by Portland directors Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher, is the first recipient of the Northwest Film Fund, a competitive fund that supports Northwest documentary film projects.

“Off Label,” which combines personal storytelling with archival and industry footage, is an “alternatively tragic and bleakly comic road trip through the methods and madness of pharmaceuticals in our culture.” A short preview is here.

Palmieri and Mosher, whose film was chosen among 39 applicants, will receive $11,000, as well 80 hours of post-production services at the Seattle facilities Bad Animals and Modern Digital. KCTS 9 has committed to consider the winning film for broadcast, as well as to offer editorial advice to the filmmakers as they find useful.

The Northwest Film Fund was created to support emerging documentary filmmakers. It carries on the legacy of the Northwest Pooled Fund, a fund created by Humanities Washington. From 2003 to 2005 the Northwest Pooled Fund supported 10 local documentary films, including “Wheedle’s Grove” and “Made in China.”
