Local people. Local stories. Local lives. Local films. Northwest Film Forum’s Local Sightings Film Festival is made by the people and for the people of the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
From the sea to the mountains and all that lies between, we look for films as diverse as the nature surrounding us to screen every September/October in Seattle.
We are now accepting films for the 16th annual festival, Local Sightings 2013! Eligible films are those finished within the last 18 months, made by filmmakers living in the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia, and the Yukon Territories).
We screen shorts, documentaries, narratives, experimental films and music videos at our annual festival. If your film is selected for screening, you not only get the opportunity to show your work in Seattle during our week-long film extravaganza, but also have a chance to win juried prizes, network with industry professionals and attend one of the Northwest’s best festivals for showcasing new and local work.
We look forward to seeing your stories and creations!
