Tacoma Film Festival Closing Night: To The Stars with director Martha Stephens

October 10th 7:00pm - 10:00pm

to-the-stars film TFF 2019

Closing the 2019 Tacoma Film Festival is TO THE STARS (2019 Sundance Film Festival official selection), a drama that follows, in director Martha Stephens' words, "a timid and cloistered teen girl’s coming of age in 1961 Oklahoma as she develops her first authentic friendship with a restless and enigmatic new girl." 

"Tenderly rendered but with a powerful impact, director Martha Stephens' coming-of-age drama TO THE STARS is a luminous tale of teen girls discovering themselves on the harsh prairies of Oklahoma." — Sean P. Means, The Movie Cricket


Martha Stephens will be in attendance and will participate in a post-film Q&A.


Watch this last feature film of TFF 2019 and join us after to toast an incredible eight days of storytelling, and to learn who won this year's Audience Choice winners. Enjoy refreshments from Pacific Grill, a no host bar, and music.
