Local Sightings is a film festival for the Northwest.
Northwest Film Forum's premiere showcase of Northwest filmmaking is back, bigger than ever, October 3-8, 2008. The festival, which happens at NWFF's theaters in Seattle, features great prizes, filmmaker parties, archival Northwest films and an impressive national film industry jury looking for strong Northwest work.
The annual festival includes both feature film presentations as well as short film programs and special events with live film performances, installation art, audience participation and parties. This year's festival takes place in the cinemas of Northwest Film Forum from October 3-8. The line up of films will be announced and posted on the website on September 20. Included in this year's festival will be the usual assortment of fiction, documentary and experimental films as well as a featured presentation of a historical Seattle film, a staged reading of this year's Washington State Screenplay Competition winning script, and an opening party that will ignite Seattle's film scene Friday night and keep it bleary eyed Saturday morning.
