Life Hack, film about cyber privacy, streams this weekend

PORT TOWNSEND — “Life Hack: Cover Your Webcam,” a comedic and cautionary tale about privacy — or lack thereof — is the Port Townsend Film Festival Pic for May, so it’s available for streaming this week.

Admission is $10 per household to watch the 90-minute film plus an interview with Sloan Copeland, the director.

For details and to purchase a ticket, see, and for technical help and more information, email [email protected] or phone 360-379-1333.

When “Life Hack” came to the actual Port Townsend Film Festival back in 2017, it won the Best Narrative Feature prize for its tale of good-guy hackers, social media and “the Moraler,” an infamous cyber bully.

Proceeds from PTFF Pics tickets are shared with the filmmakers, so “your ticket purchase directly fuels the creation of more great work,” the nonprofit festival’s newsletter notes.

In other festival news, May 10 is the deadline to submit a documentary, narrative or short film to the Port Townsend Film Festival, set for Sept. 23 through Oct. 3. Information awaits on the fest’s website for filmmakers and anyone interested in partaking in the 22nd annual event.
