Join us at the 2nd annual 253 Film Summit 253 film competition filmmakers 2018

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!
