The Gig Harbor Film Festival is one of the fastest growing independent film festivals in the Northwest. Gig Harbor is located 40 miles southwest of Seattle, Washington.

“Welcome to Gig Harbor, Washington’s Maritime City.  Grab a kayak or a latte, sip some wine or savor ice cream, put your feet up or slip on your running shoes.  Whatever you fancy, we have it in Gig Harbor, named one of Smithsonian Magazine’s Top Five Small towns for culture, heritage and charm.  Gig Harbor will offer a warm film friendly welcome.  You’ll find what you’re looking for in the harbor.”

The 2016 Gig Harbor Film Festival starts Thursday, October 20th with an opening film and then a gala party after at the Harbor History Museum. The festival runs from Friday, October 21st through Sunday, October 23rd with several events planned throughout the festival.
