Hannah Spool on the big screen in Portland Film Fest

Hannah Spool used to live in Port Orchard before moving to Portland via Los Angeles. During her time in L.A., she was in a movie called “Sea Horse,” which will screen several times during the upcoming Portland Film Festival.

The film, a survival tale directed  by Kamell Allaway, actually was shot in Spool’s native Alaska. It’Hannahs been making the rounds of film festivals, and garnering positive reviews, like the one from Cinequest’s Vivien Yuen: “Stunningly shot against an otherworldly Alaskan backdrop … a surreal journey through a strangely beautiful reality.”

Spool broke into the movie biz working as Kristen Stewart’s stand-in during filming of the first “Twilight” movie on the Olympic Peninsula. She also did some local community theater, including the 2009 musical “Company” at Western Washington Center for the Arts. She’s been based in the Portland area since going to work as a flight attendant for Skywest Airlines.

“Sea Horse” screens at 1:45 p.m. on Sept. 2 at the festival, which runs Sept. 1-7. Unfortunately, it’s not on the roster of films at the upcoming Port Townsend Film Festival Sept. 25-27.SeaHorse
