Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival
October 31 - November 5
Now in its 45th year, the Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival is the Northwest’s premiere showcase of new work by leading regional filmmakers. This touchstone annual event brings artists and audiences together for a community celebration including current northwest film exhibition, and Northwest Filmmakers’ Summit. Annually, Northwest Fest draws more than 400 entries from Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.
Part of the Festival experience is facilitating dialogue between artist and audience. In addition to the screenings and socializing, the Northwest Filmmakers’ Summit featured at the Festival is a daylong event featuring equipment vendors, filmmaker panels and presentations, and more. Our hope is that together, this year’s Festival offers equal measures of celebration, discovery, and inspiration. We look forward to your feedback on ways we can continue to make this annual gathering an essential and animating community event.
