The Tacoma Film Festival celebrates current independent film from around the globe. We especially encourage filmmakers from the Pacific Northwest area to submit to our festival. And we encourage all accepted filmmakers to attend the screenings and events, if possible! This is our time to celebrate you, the filmmaker, and the invaluable artistic talents that you provide to the film community. Each year we strive to enrich our community by bridging the gap between ourselves and outstanding works of independent film.
TFF’s primary host, The Grand Cinema is a strong Puget Sound art house, non-profit movie theater that thrives due to the support of our volunteers, members and loyal patrons. Our small staff transforms into a Film Festival team to put on Tacoma’s Film Festival every year. We strongly believe that TFF supports the Grand’s vision:
“The Grand Cinema is the premier venue for enriching lives and enhancing the cultural vitality of the community through the art of film.”
The Tacoma Film Festival wouldn’t be possible without the love and support of the community. We rely on volunteers to keep the reels in motion, filmmakers to create amazing films to screen, and we greatly appreciate both individual donations and our sponsors. Any extra resources given beyond TFF’s needs go to support the Grand Cinema. As always, members of the Grand Cinema receive discounts!
