Festival awards ceremony at 5:45pm
Screening at 6pm
$14 General Admission
$90 – $190 Sliding Scale
VIRTUAL, IN-PERSON, and HYBRID (virtual AND in-person) Festival Passes are available!
Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum’s ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. All doors in Northwest Film Forum are non-motorized, and may require staff assistance to open. Our upstairs workshop room is not wheelchair accessible.
We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. Also available at the front desk is a Sensory Kit you can borrow, which includes a Communication Card, noise-reducing headphones, and fidget toys.
The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject!
If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Patron Services Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our phone number (206-329-2629) is voicemail-only, but we check it often.
Made possible due to a grant from Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, in partnership with Sensory Access, our Sensory Access document presents a visual and descriptive walk-through of the NWFF space. View it in advance of attending an in-person event at bit.ly/nwffsocialnarrativepdf, in order to prepare yourself for the experience.
A number of seats will be held at each show for members of the community for whom ticket cost is an obstacle. If you’d like to attend free of charge, please email María and Paul (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org) to let them know which program and showtime you’re interested in!
NWFF patrons will be required to wear masks that cover both nose and mouth while in the building. Disposable masks are available at the door for those who need them. We are not currently checking vaccination cards. Recent variants of COVID-19 readily infect and spread between individuals regardless of vaccination status.

(Florian Sigl, Germany, 2022, 120 min, in English)
Aspiring singer Tim has been dreaming his whole life about attending Mozart All Boys Boarding School. He is ecstatic when he is finally admitted, but his first days at the prestigious school do not turn out as expected. But while he faces a hostile headmaster, the stresses of first love, and struggling with the authenticity of his singing voice, Tim uncovers a wondrous secret in the old school building – a gateway to a parallel world.
He finds himself thrown into a new reality: in the role of Prince Tamino, he becomes immersed in the world of Mozart’s The Magic Flute, an opera where fantasy has no limits. Now, Tim lives a double life, trying to win a prominent role in the school’s upcoming recital by day and returning to a magical universe by night where he must risk his life to free the lovely princess Pamina.
Pulled in two directions takes its toll, and Tim risks letting down those he loves. He’s forced to make a decision – but has he learned enough to make the right choice?
🆓 BONUS ACTIVITY! Create, draw, and color your own fantasy characters at a lobby booth prepared by Majestic Adventures between Fantasy Camp Showcase (3:30-4:30pm) and our screening of The Magic Flute (6pm)!
