Things are looking up for film in the Northwest, and it’s partly thanks to the Tacoma Film Festival. Now in its fourth year, the festival organized by the Grand Cinema has taken an intensely local turn, with nearly one-third of its 132 films made by Northwest filmmakers. It’s good exposure for them, good marketing for the Grand, and a unique experience for audiences who see local surroundings and lifestyles on the big screen. The result is a festival that features 41 locally made films, with three specific to Tacoma, and 35 local filmmakers in attendance.
