For the fifth year in a row, MovieMaker Magazine named the Tacoma Film Festival one of the “Top 50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee.” The 14th annual celebration of groundbreaking independent film will take place October 3–10, 2019. TFF grows every year: 2018 was a success supported by thousands of audience members, more than 100 visiting filmmakers, multiple sellouts, and over 200 featured works from around the world (including virtual reality, music videos, and cinematic performances).
Established in 2006, the Tacoma Film Festival presents a lively week of films, workshops, events, and discussions. Visiting filmmakers and industry professionals from around the world make for a rich networking and collaborative space where new projects are born and inspiration for future work grows.
