NWProjections Sixth Annual Bellingham Film Festival

Bellingham, WA (PRWEB) November 4, 2005

NWProjections Sixth Annual Film Festival, highlighting local filmmakers from Whatcom, Skagit, and Island Counties, will be held in downtown Bellingham Nov. 10 – 13. The films’ subjects range from a documentary film, “El Pueblo Unido,” featuring the plight of the Skagit Valley farmworker; an experimental film, “The Vanishing Loggers,” focusing on Northwest logging families; to an animated film, “Skeeters,” tracing the comic adventures of two Pacific Northwest mosquitoes.

Opening night’s gala event kicks off at 7:30 p.m. at Bellingham’s Nightlight Lounge, featuring a multi-screen showing of trailers and excerpts from the festival’s 30 featured films as well as sneak previews of area films still in production.

Film screenings also will be held at The Pickford Cinema, Pickford Dreamspace, and the Wild Buffalo, all located in downtown Bellingham. This year’s official film selections showcase the best films in the categories of narrative features, documentaries, shorts, animation, and experimental films.

X-Files Director and Producer R.W. Goodwin will speak at Saturday’s filmmakers’ convention; Sunday afternoon showcases the festival’s popular “Guerrilla Film Festival,” featuring several short films made by Washington state high school students during a 48-hour film production marathon; Awards night, the film festival’s final event, honors the best film in each of the film categories with the “Golden Hamster” award.    

The cost of attending the weekend’s festivities, Thursday through Sunday, is $ 20 for Whatcom Film Association members and $ 25 for non-members.
