Sept. 16 to Sept. 25: 25th Annual Local Sightings Film Festival

Local Sightings Film Festival back for its 25th year showcasing the Pacific Northwest’s most creative filmmakers and individuals. The program will run from Sept. 16 to Sept. 25 both in-person at the Northwest Film Forum in Seattle and virtually online. 

The five-day lineup will feature a curated selection of films from various genres like true crime, comedy, experimental documentaries, romance and more. Each film offers a unique plot, capturing stories like eccentric tales from a vegan vampire to traumatic, real-life cold cases. Local Sightings Film Festival will include 10 feature films and 11 short films, many of which stem from women of color and are sequels to fan favorites from previous festivals. 

Some feature pictures guests can expect to enjoy include “Eat Cake,” a present-day comedy series following the lives of identical twin sisters Laura and Erika as they navigate life as teens; “Thoughts on Time & Lessons Learned,” an experimental diary from a group of people discussing their feelings toward time, aging and the lessons they have learned; and “THE CALLING,” a picture inspired by Greek mythology that explores the power struggle between the divine feminine and masculine energies in a genre-bending production and more.

The program will also offer special events, including workshops, red carpets, meet and greets, panels with alums from the Fiscal Program, an award ceremony, a live auction and a stunning evening gala to top off the perfect week. 

Admission is $60 for Northwest Film Forum members and starts at $90 for non-members.
