Created by John White and Shelli Park, with help from Renatta Emerson, BUFO’s new category will showcase original new films made just for this competition, which will be screened on a big screen outside on SW 152nd Street in Olde Burien! Filmmakers have been tasked with shooting their productions in Burien, showing off local businesses and using a general theme involving UFOs, aliens, Men/Women in Black, conspiracies, chase scenes and more.
