"The ultimate indie film festival." - City Arts

"One of the premier festivals in the Northwest." - Post Defiance

Our Mission: Sharing Stories of note

TFF gathers the best in new, independent films, because never-before-seen storytelling and perspectives deserve to be shared and celebrated. 

12 Years Strong

Established in 2006, the annual Tacoma Film Festival presents a lively week of films, workshops, events, and discussions. TFF programming is a unique blend of audience and industry programming that empowers all who attend to connect with creators. 

Visiting festival guests from around the world make for a rich networking and collaborative space where new projects are born and inspiration for future work grows. See what Director/Cinematographer Nicholas Pilarski, a 2016 25 New Face had to say about his experience at TFF in this article from MovieMaker Magazine
