Local Sightings Film Festival 2020 goes virtual this September 18-28

Enjoy 10 days of films and special events championing Pacific Northwest film and media makers, brought right to your living room.

In its 23rd year, Northwest Film Forum's Local Sightings Film Festival will be hosted virtually due to COVID-19, thus introducing the entire world to over 135 short and feature films from throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Local Sightings has gained a reputation for its strong programmatic design - which builds off of common themes rather than being hampered by the limitations of genre and promotes diverse media as a critical tool for public dialogue and engagement.

"This year's films convey a collective longing for connection amidst calls to action, while holding a mirror to the ever-intensifying absurdities of the current moment. Equal parts heart, hope, heresy, and humor," muses NWFF Artistic Director Rana San. "The range of stories is simply stunning - a true reflection of the diversity and creativity of filmmakers in our region."

The 2020 program intentionally centers BIPOC and LGBTQ+ artists, to stress how film and mediamakers traditionally underrepresented in mainstream media hold perspectives which are vital to furthering the important conversations of the current moment. Many of the program blocks will invite viewers to think deeper about the myriad ways in which virtual and "real" life blend, prompting them through related readings, participatory activities via snail mail, or shared interactive experiences, such as experiential surrealist games and online vision boards.

Programming highlights include FALL BACK DOWN, a queer-punk romp that is part murder mystery, part rom-com; BeautyBoiz: The Collective, including some of the BeautyBoiz most loved video performances and world premiere content; CONDiTiONER, a surreal short film about a dysphoric musician who takes a mysterious drug that erases his identity and gets caught in a bisexual love triangle with his two best friends; and The AMP Virtual Arts Series - House of Angels: Living with AIDS at Bailey-Boushay House, 1992-1995, an online presentation of the photographs of Saul Bromberger and Sandra Hoover.

The full lineup of special events, feature films, and short programs is online at localsightings.org.

All programs are pay-what-you-can; $0-25 sliding scale; festival passes are also available on sliding scale, as a part of NWFF's commitment to equity and affordability during COVID-19 closures.
