We are getting really excited over here at The Grand Cinema. 

This year, the Tacoma Film Festival is eleven years old and each year, the festival grows, more filmmakers from the Northwest and around the world join us, and more local businesses join us in supporting this celebration of creativity and the future of film.

We're pleased to partner with the local design and marketing firm AM Independent who worked with us to develop a great campaign that includes a video series to help us spread the word and connect with our community as we get ready for the Tacoma Film Festival. 

Keep an eye out for a new short video every day that will share local perspectives on film, life, and Tacoma. Check out our first below:

We're thrilled to share the voices and perspectives of Tacoma, to feature local artist Gillian (GeeGee) Nordlund, to debut our first ever virtual reality/360 degree film studio, and to present a truly captivating selection of the best in contemporary independent film.

So get excited with us!
