Having proudly produced Bumbershoot for almost four decades, One Reel now welcomes a new role in the stewardship of this extraordinary event. As of this year, One Reel is collaborating with AEG Live to produce the Festival. This new relationship allows Bumbershoot to reap the dual benefits of AEG’s expertise as an international producer in the music and special events industry and One Reel’s special regional expertise of the community and local arts scene.
One Reel will continue to work with scores of Seattle and Northwest arts organizations, artists and project producers to showcase a unique collection of film, dance, visual and literary arts, spectacle, comedy and children’s programming. The organization is dedicated to preserving, protecting and enhancing this hometown arts celebration that reflects the unique character of the region. One Reel is honored to be part of Bumbershoot’s special history, and dedicated to being thoughtful stewards of its future.
Bumbershoot has entertained over 7 million people and has earned the highest global accolades awarded in the festival industry. It has also been one of the most distinguished cultural events in Seattle and the country, marked by a special blend of world and nationally renowned talent, local artistry and spectacle.
