City of Burien – August 2016
Burien is a waterfront community with a backdrop of six miles of Puget Sound shoreline, expansive mountain views, and sunsets that provide breathing space from the confinements of a big city; giving life to a creative mix of actors, artists and writers that together form a strong film community. With an authentic downtown core filled with delicious restaurants, bars and boutiques, these unique spaces provide the perfect setting for year-round activity like live theater, farmers markets, monthly art walks, antique car shows, heritage festivals and more! Community film festivals and events include the Burien UFO Festival, the Burien Film Festival and a Film Office Happy Hour at the Tin Room Bar & Theater on the first Tuesday of each month. Residents take pride in their neighborhoods and protecting public spaces. Come explore Burien and see how preserving both the environment and promoting economic success can yield breathtaking results.
