Local Sightings Full Festival Pass
Full Festival Pass to Local Sightings 2015!
NOTE: Includes entry to all festival screenings, plus opening & closing night events and complimentary drinks at Festival opening night on September 24 (21+). The Full Festival pass does not include admission to Seattle Film Summit events.
Local Sightings is a showcase of new films from the Northwest that puts homegrown talent in front of Seattle audiences and connects artists from Alaska to Oregon in a celebration of film from the region. Produced every year by Northwest Film Forum, the festival features new films, parties, juried prizes and film conversation. Screenings are only part of the story: artist talks, performances and networking events held throughout the week allow film lovers and filmmakers to explore local creativity together. In 2012, Seattle Weekly called Local Sightings the "best film festival" in Seattle.
By popular demand, we're super-sizing the 2014 festival to 10 firecracker days of local films, as well as an expanded, week-long Seattle Film Summit. Festival 2014 focuses on our film community: the people that make this region great. From an opening night PechaKucha-style program & bash, to a new animated film paired with a coloring book happy hour, to an archival program of classic Seattle skate films on VHS, to a workshop on "botanicollage" filmmaking, to a killer closing night documentary and offsite party, Festival 2014 is full of creative connection and film discovery.
In recent years, Local Sightings has heralded many new Northwest film talents, including Stranger Genius award nominee Zach Weintraub, and Filmmaker Magazine's "25 Faces To Watch" honoree Nandan Rao. Come view new films from your own backyard with us, have a beer with friends, and find a true hub for film lovers and filmmakers in Seattle. If you prefer the home-grown to the over-blown, Local Sightings is for you!
