About Red Ivory:
Captain John Roundtree has been a wildlife ranger in Tanzania for seven years, with a talent for catching poachers and preventing crimes against animals and humans alike. Yet despite his efforts, Roundtree’s reputation as a former poacher continues to haunt him, causing distrust amongst the ranger troop that he commands. Their suspicions escalate when they find themselves under attack from the criminal organizations that Roundtree once worked for.

Noah Foster-Koth has spent countless hours at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. He started writing screenplays at the age of eleven, but Red Ivory marks the first time that his passion for animals and cinema have come together in the same project. Noah is currently studying English and Spanish at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon.

First Draft takes place on Wednesdays monthly from 6:30pm to 9:30pm.

First Draft is part of SIFF Education's Catalyst program. Catalyst is designed to support filmmakers, both artistically and professionally, as they progress from one stage of their careers to the next. Catalyst First Draft offers audience members a glimpse into a developmental stage of the creative process, in which a screenplay is prepped for eventual production via a live table read performed by professional Seattle actors. Audience members, guided by industry professionals, then have the opportunity to offer immediate and constructive feedback. Join us each month for Catalyst First Draft and take part making a good script even better!
