Team Demo Hugo is a collective of geographers, archivists, planners, animators, filmmakers, writers, Seattleites, transplants, poets and literary geeks. We’re making a documentary film about the

tear-down of 1634 11th Avenue, the current home of Richard Hugo House.

WHAT'S NEW

The word is out! The lineup has just been announced for the 43rd Portland International Film Festival, and we’re proud to be on the marquee.

After a successful showing at the 2019 Tacoma Film Festival, Where the House Was is a proud winner of the festival's 2019 award for Best Pacific Northwest Feature (see our snazzy award to the left, and see director Ryan K. Adams proudly posing with it below). We're so...

After a successful premiere (and encore screening!) at Local Sightings Film Festival in late September, we're excited to bring the film—like so many of the artists it depicts—out of Seattle. That starts this weekend at the Tacoma Film Festival.

Today, for the first time in months, the respective members of our crew turned off their fans, pulled on their sweaters, and gulped their coffee without taking a sweat bath. It's still warm for Seattle, but autumn is in sight. Which lends us a handy framework for showi...

Hey folks! It's been a while since our last update, but here are some developments as of the new year:

 

We've been hard at work on interviews. We've gotten to speak on-camera with Frances's Hugo House co-founders, along with an actor who used to perform in the building....

Team Demo Hugo is all about being “collective”—collective effort building a collective memory. That’s a big part of why we opted for crowdfunding. We wanted to make room for others to support this film remotely, and we want to recognize those of you who’ve been able an...

This project is brimming with genuine enthusiasm. Seriously. Until the Lucky 7 Foundation awarded us a grant last month, everyone but Cali was working for free, and Frances was actually paying out-of-pocket for a lot of what needed doing. So what's attracted all of the...

Hopefully you saw our first post inviting y'all to a party at Sole Repair so we can all get to know the project and make postcards to places we've loved.
