Everett to welcome film fest

February 17, 2017 by  

Residents in Everett are getting ready for the 2017 Everett Film Festival. The two day event takes a deeper look into the lives of women through the media of film.

First founded in 1997, the festival has been shown every year since then. It was first put together by a group of women who wanted to bring quality international cinema to Washington and further explore the female experience through animations, documentaries, shorts, and feature films. Now in its 20th year, this fest looks to be the biggest one yet.

This year, a wide variety of movies have been selected, including Haute Cuisine (a narrative feature by Christian Vincent), Deaf Jam (a documentary by July Lieff), and Soulmates (a film by Bryce Dallas Howard). Additionally, the first day of the festival will feature a gala that includes an auction for work by local artist Mike Nordine. A happy hour will also be held on the second day. More details can be found on the flyers.

The 20th Annual Everett Film Festival will take place tonight and tomorrow night from 6:00 pmto 10:00 pm at the Everett Performing Arts Center, located at 2710 Westmore Ave. Admission is $25 for Friday including the Gala, $30 for Saturday including Happy Hour, and $50 for both days.
