Engauge Experimental Film Festival 2021


Oct. 28—31, 2021 [In-Person]

Oct. 28 — Nov. 8, 2021 [Online]

Celebrating sprocket-driven, artist-made work.

Each Fall, Engauge Experimental Film Festival hosts screenings sponsored by the Interbay Cinema Society in partnership with Northwest Film Forum. The festival screens only work that originates on film, by filmmakers both local and international.

This year’s festival will be a hybrid model, taking place both on the web and at NWFF’s cinema in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.

There are three categories of festival pass: VIRTUAL, IN-PERSON, and HYBRID (virtual AND in-person).

Throughout festival weekend, Engauge 2021 will be uploading its virtual filmmaker Q&As to this Vimeo showcase as they are edited. Check back often for more content! All Q&As are free to view.
