There’s a new film festival in Tacoma and it’s destiny. The Destiny City Film Festival to be exact.
Organizers announced today the film line-up for the event which runs July 31–August 3 at the historic Blue Mouse Theatre on Proctor Street. It includes 29 films, both local and international, filmmaker Q & As, and a storytelling event.
“Warren” kicks off the inaugural DCFF at 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 31. It tells the story of an aimless twenty-something who reconnects with his ex-girlfriend and discovers the importance of following his own dream.
The festival will run all weekend and feature short film packages, documentaries including “DamNation” and “I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story” and comedies like “Arlo and Julie” and Northwest films “B.F.E.,” “Frink,” and “Look Up in the Sky.”
