Everett Film Festival Next Weekend


Click to visit the website for the 2013 Everett Film Festival

The 16th Annual Everett Film Festival is set for next Friday and Saturday night at the Everett Performing Arts Center in downtown Everett. In 1997 a group of visionary women banded together in the firm belief that the time had come for Everett and Snohomish County to experience quality international film in a festival setting.

With this idea in mind, the Everett Women’s Film Festival was born. The festival was dedicated to highlighting the strength, humor, and creativity of women through provocative and entertaining films. Over the years, the festival broadened its view to embrace not only films primarily crafted by women but also to present movies offering insight into the lives of women from various cultures, times and experiences as they meet the challenges of work, family, aging and love. With changing times, the name of the festival changed to the Everett Film Festival.

Even though the festival name has changed, the Everett Film Festival continues to offer engaging and thought-provoking films from around the country and across the globe with a unique look into the lives of women through documentaries, feature films, animations and film shorts. Here’s the lineup…
