Our celebration of local filmmaking has begun!
32 film crews competing in our annual 72 hour competition started their journeys on April 25 (follow along on the hashtag #253seconds). Their films will debut at the 253 Film Party May 10 and then, the very next day, we head to the University of Washington Tacoma to the 2nd annual 253 Film Summit.
We have five engaging sessions for our attendees to enjoy including a presentation from Washington Filmworks, a discussion about Tacoma Creates, and lunch with the Washington Lawyers for the Arts.
We’re also very excited about two new guests joining us this year: writer/director Megan Griffiths, and Manager of Research & Education for the Sundance Institute’s Creative Distribution Initiative, Jess Fuselier. Read on to learn more!
Writer/Director Bryce Richardson’s debut feature, I Want More, I Want Less world-premiered at the 13th annual Tacoma Film Festival in October 2018. Learn more about the film and Richardson's process in this interview.
I am so inspired to be a part of these next steps for The Grand Cinema and delighted that we could do this work in partnership with Lincoln High School. We can’t wait to find ways to share the art and skill of storytelling (collaboratively through digital media) with more and more of our neighboring students.
Thank you all for being a part of our community and supporting youth expression, leadership, collaboration, and storytelling. Please join us this Thursday, Friday, or Saturday for the first Lincoln Film Festival.
