Local Sightings Film Festival 2017: Special Events
Venue: 2017, September 22 – 30, at Northwest Film Forum.
Local Sightings is the Northwest’s premier showcase of new films, putting homegrown talent in front of Seattle audiences and connecting artists from Alaska to Oregon in a weeklong celebration of cinema from the region. Produced by Northwest Film Forum, the festival features new feature and short films, juried prizes, industry events, filmmaker workshops, live performances, and an opening night party fit for such a milestone edition.
Local Sightings is programmed via a competitive selection process, and Northwest Film Forum awards juried prizes at the festival to local filmmakers, that include cash grants, additional screening opportunities and in-kind post-production services and gear access.
