October has officially arrived here in Tacoma, WA. Among all of the enjoyable fall festivities that this month brings, it also means it’s time to enjoy some up-and-coming cinema at the annual Tacoma Film Festival! This October 3rd - 10th, Nantucket Gate Blog invites you to support the local arts by attending the festival. Whether you make it for one film screening or attend as many as you can with a festival pass, you’re bound to have a good experience. 

The Tacoma Film Festival (TFF) has been called “the ultimate indie film festival” by CityArts., This festival lasts a week and features independent films from around the globe. Film screenings for the event will be held in Tacoma’s Grand Cinema, a local, independent, nonprofit art house cinema.  The mission of the TFF is to bring people together to appreciate the art of film and to show “never-before-seen storytelling and perspectives [that] deserve to be shared and celebrated.”

The Tacoma Film Festival happened for the first time in 2006 and has continued to grow in size and hype each year since. The festival showcases new independent films with stories that deserve to be shared. They are the only festival in the world to host Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film annually, which internationally recognizes new and talented filmmakers and spotlight them and their work.

Every year, the festival awards the best films for their achievements in a variety of categories, including best short narrative, best short documentary, best regional film, best screenplay, best cinematography, and more. 

You don’t want to pass up the opportunity to attend this exciting festival celebrating the art of film. MovieMaker Magazine has named the TFF as one of the Top 50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee for four years in a row! And since the festival continues to grow and become bigger each year, we don’t anticipate that changing any time soon!
