Assembled by ace programmers and bonded together on park treks that overlook the Puget Sound area’s water and forests, the Tacoma Film Festival gives attending moviemakers a chance to escape the deafening roar of the fest circuit and retreat into quality conversations. “We allow moviemakers the space to actually talk with one another, and celebrate film with sincerity, true curiosity, and openness,” says Assistant Executive Director Wade Neal. Multiple 2018 screenings were proof of this, as post-screening Q&As were dominated by esteemed members of Filmmaker’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film, most itching to collaborate with their comrades.

    Agree, remember to have your gold professionally graded and you should ensure that you organise the correct level of insurance to cover your investment.
