Tacoma, Washington – USA
October 5 to 12, 2017
12th Annual Tacoma Film Festival (TFF), named byMovieMaker Magazine as one of the top “50 Festivals Worth the Entry Fee” and by Seattle CityArts Magazine as “The ultimate indie film festival.” The Tacoma Film Festival is a celebration of independent film mirroring the diverse and eclectic sensibilities of Tacoma, Washington. Including selections from the Pacific Northwest and all over the world, TFF prides itself on showcasing the connectedness of local, national, and international film.
TFF invites filmmakers to submit Feature and Short films as well as Virtual Reality projects and Music Videos. The Tacoma community welcomes filmmakers from all around the world to join for a week long celebration of indie film and camaraderie. MovieMaker Magazinedescribes TFF, “Tacoma Film Festival’s commitment to creating a space that organically casts aside the industrial pressures often present at festivals in favor of connection and the sharing of creative resources, is refreshing.” New filmmakers are given an extra spotlight with the “25 New Faces of Independent Film” program. No matter your background or genre the festival is an inclusive environment to be discovered.
Established in 2006, the Tacoma Film Festival was created and developed by the passionate individuals behind Tacoma’s only non-profit art-house movie theater, The Grand Cinema. The Grand (TFF’s primary venue) is one of the Puget Sound region’s strongest outlets for both international and local independent filmmakers, and works hand-in-hand with the festival to connect our neighborhood with even more dynamic and entertaining films.

MORE ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Known as the “City of Destiny,” Tacoma is far more than just the little sister of Seattle. Since the mid-90s, a thriving arts community has grown up within and out of Tacoma’s gritty, blue-collar roots as a port town. Tacoma has undergone a renaissance in the past twenty years, bringing in delicious restaurants and cafes, fashionable and quirky boutiques, as well as a number of galleries that supplement the beautiful museums and theaters that already graced the downtown area.
TFF is committed to maintaining complete and timely communication, showcasing your work to an interested audience, promoting an engaging conversation with your fellow filmmakers and movie-lovers alike, and providing an overall enjoyable and unforgettable experience. Submit your project today!
