Welcome to the Snohomish Film Festival! This is the premier film festival for filmmakers in the Pacific Northwest. We feature short films from local cast, crew, and locations. We are expanding this year to include short films from across the U.S., Canada, and other countries.

Our annual live event is a hub for networking and collaboration. Our goal is to build a forum for independent filmmakers to meet in person, talk about their craft, and possibly find their next project through the connections they make here. We encourage ALL film lovers to join in this celebration of indie films.

We are excited to be partnering with Shoreline Community College this year! The use of facilities, fostering students, and promoting the film program at the school is our 2023 focus. We will screen all chosen films at the main theatre on September 9th, 2023. Awards ceremony will follow the last film of the night.

16101 Greenwood Ave N Main Auditorium, Shoreline, WA 98133

Let’s all go to the movies!

    The organizers did a great job and put on a really fun event. I enjoyed the chance to meet other filmmakers of some really strong films and hope to attend again and again.

  • What a wonderful festival! Communication was great, event was fun and well organized! Networking with other PNW filmmakers was a bonus. We truly appreciate being an Official Selection of your festival, and the honor of winning Best Score for our film The System!

  • Great local film festival with a personal touch. I was happy my team won best editing for my short film, Color of the Sky.

    It was nice that the festival also provided written feedback for all films submitted. Hope to be back again soon!
