Coming September 2014

Local Sightings is the Northwest’s premiere showcase of new films, putting homegrown talent in front of Seattle audiences and connecting artists from Alaska to Oregon in a week-long celebration of cinema from the region. Produced by Northwest Film Forum, this annual fall film festival features new films, juried prizes, killer parties and national industry scouts looking for strong new work.

Submission Deadline: July 11, 2014

Local people. Local stories. Local lives. Local films. Northwest Film Forum’s Local Sightings Film Festival is made by the people and for the people of the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

From the sea to the mountains and all that lies between, we seek excellent new films, made by local film artists, and screen them every September/October in Seattle.

We are now accepting films for the 17th annual festival, Local Sightings 2014! Eligible films are those finished within the last 18 months and made by filmmakers living in the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia, and the Yukon Territories).

We screen shorts, documentaries, narratives, experimental films and music videos at our annual festival. If your film is selected for to screen at the festival, you not only get the opportunity to show your work in Seattle during our week-long film extravaganza, but also have a chance to win juried prizes, network with industry professionals and attend one of the Northwest’s best festivals for showcasing local film. We look forward to seeing your work!
