Gig Harbor Film Festival is the Biggest Event of the Year

The annual Gig Harbor Film Festival will take place in Gig Harbor, Washington from September 22-25, 2022.


Gig Harbor, WA August 29, 2022 — It’s that time of year again! The hottest up-and-coming independent film festival is returning to Uptown Gig Harbor.

Since its first festival in 2007, the Gig Harbor Film Festival (GHFF) has been steadily rising in popularity. With over 60 films and nearly 70 visiting filmmakers/directors/actors, it’s no wonder the GHFF attracts over 3,000 film fans every year.

Filmmakers have rated the GHFF on FilmFreeway as one of the Top 100 Best Reviewed Festivals — out of 10,000 festivals around the world.

“We can’t say enough good things about this festival! Everything ran so smooth, they had a great screening venue, tons of cool parties/events and it was just first-class all around,” sums up one filmmaker. “We can’t wait to visit beautiful Gig Harbor once again!”

The festival will kick off on September 22 with the Opening Night film, The Ventures: Stars on Guitars, starting at 6:30pm. Following the film, there will be a VIP afterparty at local favorite Fondi Pizzeria.

From feature-length films to shorts, there is something for everybody in the lineup this year. There will be five films that are made in Washington and several local documentaries. Featured Gig Harbor filmmakers include Peter Bortel and Carly Vester. The filmmakers and their creative team will attend Q&A sessions for the documentaries 700 Feet Down and Stand UP.

“I think this year’s lineup is going to be the best one yet,” says a local film buff. “We are really excited to return to the Gig Harbor Film Festival!”
