    Every year, Local Sightings showcases the films and filmmakers of the Pacific Northwest. All types of moving image media are eligible; projects must be finished within the last 18 months, and the filmmaker(s) must be based in Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia, or the Yukon Territories. The 20th edition will feature special events and retrospectives celebrating the last 20 years of Pacific Northwest film.

    The 2016 edition of the festival featured 100 Pacific Northwest films, web series, music videos, and VR projects. 50% of the films in the program were made by women.

    Local Sightings is programmed via a competitive selection process, and Northwest Film Forum awards juried prizes at the festival to local filmmakers, that include cash grants, additional screening opportunities and in-kind post-production services and gear access.

    The submission fee is $15, and film submissions are due by June 13th.

    NWFest_CallforEntriesThe Northwest’s premiere showcase of new work by regional filmmakers, the Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival—for 38 years called the Northwest Film & Video Festival—brings artists and audiences together for a singular community celebration. Each year the Festival draws more than 400 entries from filmmakers in Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington, presenting to the public carefully selected programs of outstanding work and awarding critical recognition to top juror- and audience-recognized films. After the Festival, the event lives on in the form of the “Best of the Northwest” touring program, presented at key cultural and educational organizations across the Northwest. Past tour programs have been presented all the way to the edges of the Northwest, in Great Falls, MT, Klamath Falls, OR, Seattle, WA, Hanes, AK, and Boise, ID, among many other locations.
