We are kicking off the 17th annual Tacoma Film Festival with a special hometown preview of local filmmakers Isaac Olsen and Justin and Rob Peterson's new documentary on Tacoma rock'n'roll royalty, The Ventures! The Ventures are the best-selling instrumental group of all time and, more importantly, the most successful rock band to ever hail from our fair city. Their new feature-length film which was created over 14 years with the help of the band's co-founder, Don Wilson, before he passed away in January.
This version of Walk Don't Run: The Story of the Ventures is still technically a work-in-progress. Some elements will differ from the final version which will officially be released in 2023. The filmmakers want to offer their fellow Tacomans and supporters this opportunity for a special preview.
