2017 TACOMA FILM FESTIVAL
50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee, 2014-2017 - MovieMaker Magazine
"The ultimate indie film festival." - Seattle's CityArts Magazine
"One of the premier festivals in the Northwest." - PostDefiance.com
The Tacoma Film Festival is a celebration of independent film mirroring the diverse and eclectic sensibilities of western Washington's second largest city. Including selections from the Pacific Northwest and all over the world, TFF prides itself on showcasing the connectedness of local, national, and international film.
The Tacoma Film Festival annually programs Filmmaker Magazine's 25 New Faces of Independent Film. It's the first-of-its-kind film series for the publication's 25 New Faces of Independent Film issue. We look forward to continuing this special program, as we aim to further support up-and-coming indie filmmakers and their work.
This is our time to celebrate you, the filmmaker, and the invaluable artistic talents that you provide to the film community.
Please, no phone inquiries.
