Four days and nights of top-quality independent films. This year, we plan to screen 50 internationally-acclaimed films, present a juried video-art exhibition and, once again, host the Friday night opening gala and Saturday night celebration.
Since its inception in 2004, the Ellensburg Film Festival has grown into a major film and arts event in the Northwest with over 2,000 people in attendance. The four-day festival is noted for its outstanding selection of critically-acclaimed films, numerous screenings and venues, diverse cultural and artistic offerings, and a fun and relaxed atmosphere open to all.
Each year, the EFF films go on to win the most prestigious awards in the industry. Our 2006/07 titles were featured at over 200 festivals world-wide, some of which went on to win two Academy-Awards, Sundance, Toronto, Berlin, and New York festivals. We were particularly honored when chosen to host the North American premiere of the 2007 Cannes winner in front of the sold-out EFF audience!
