Something strange is coming to the virtual world. In this multi-episode live event series presented by North Bend Film Fest and Northwest Film Forum, emerging storytellers will recount peculiar tales and bizarre happenings based on their own real life experiences. Each episode will feature a strange new theme and storytellers will be challenged to win over the audience with their storytelling skills. Audience Choice winners will be invited to participate in the official 2020 North Bend Film Festival storytelling hour this October!
This virtual event series will be hosted by Seattle-based storyteller, comedian and weirdo Emmett Montgomery NBCs Last Comic Standing, Seattle Weeklys Best Comedian 2015, 2017, 2018 and host and curator of the community based comedy show Joketellers Union (with Brett Hamil) and the experimental basement/storytelling show The Magic Hat.
July 2020s theme: DREAMSCAPES. Asleep or awake, weve all experienced moments that make us question our reality. These tales will revolve around the surreal happenings that bend the senses and open the mind.
August 2020s theme: OUTSIDE WORLDS. As folks begin to reconnect with nature and culture, we are engrossed by the challenge of learning how to exist safely beyond our front doors. From new found agoraphobia to feeling like an outsider for the first time, these stories will feature the happiness and fear associated with opening up your world.
September 2020's theme: ISOLATION. Whether it's because of lockdowns or not, everyone has experienced some form of loneliness in their life. In this edition, we'll hear real life experiences from storytellers where they've overcome or in some cases, were consumed by the feeling of solitude.
