253 Short Film Party

hosted at urban grace on May 12, 2017

30+ Teams of local filmmakers are given 72 hours to create an original short film lasting no more than 253 seconds in length. 

This party premiers all these films and is one of the most lively film events of the year in Pierce County. Kick back and enjoy a collection of locally made short films and support the filmmakers on their big night!

Join the fun with: 

  • Audience Choice Voting: vote for the film you think is most deserving of the Audience Choice Award and cash prize  
  • Door Prizes: enter to win one of several giveaways simply by being at the event
  • Local Eats: enjoy locally made pizza, salads, desserts and snacks for purchase
  • Local Drinks: snag a glass of beer or wine to wash down dinner 
  • Photo Booth: capture memories in an interactive photo booth with friends and filmmakers

Tickets will go on sale in April 2017
