District 48: Automata

“Telling a 1930s noir story with robots is already challenging enough, but knowing that Washington Filmworks had my back as a filmmaker made the production of Automata a wonderful experience. There’s a lot of talent here in Washington State, and the support from the Innovation Lab afforded me the opportunity to bring this project to life, for which I am forever grateful. We have cultivated such a wonderful film community here that has such a positive impact on culture and economy, I really hope that we get to continue to tell stories that deeply move people in our beloved state.”

– Van Alan, Director, Automata
