The Northwest Film Forum is an organization dedicated to discovering, championing and sharing transformative film. Films that have or will change the way we think about story telling. From cult classics like The Graduate, to the most progressive directors such as Harmony Korine.
Local Sightings Film Festival is the purest statement of this mission. A two week, jam–packed film festival celebrating only original works only from Pacific Northwest directors. For audiences, it’s chance to see impeccably crafted stories and outrageously fresh visual experiences before, literally, the rest of the world.
In the festival’s promotional films, the eye comes to life through a series of classic cliché film moments presented with a twist. In each situation, two eyes collide, unexpectedly seeing each other in a way that clearly changes them forever, and changes the way we think of these beloved scenes forever.
