This is what Tacoma Film Festival Awards looked like back in 2019, the last time we were live and in person. What will the FabLab Education design look like when it’s unveiled at the TFF Awards Announcement and Gathering event, which is slated from 5 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 10, in The Grand Cinema’s lower lobby? Bet they look awesome. No tickets are required, and the event will be brought to you by Propel Insurance.
