Seattle, Washington: Local Sightings Film Festival

Local Sightings is a showcase of new films from the Northwest that puts homegrown talent in front of Seattle audiences and connects artists from Alaska to Oregon in a celebration of film from the region. Produced every year by Northwest Film Forum, the festival features new films, parties, juried prizes and film conversation. Screenings are only part of the story: artist talks, performances and networking events held throughout the week allow film lovers and filmmakers to explore local creativity together. In 2012, Seattle Weekly called Local Sightings the “best film festival” in Seattle.
