November 16 – November 16, 2019

Fresh Film Northwest is the Northwest Film Center’s annual juried survey of work by up-and-coming teen filmmakers living in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and British Columbia.  Now in its 43rd year, the Festival recognizes individual talent, showcases model examples of how film arts can be taught in schools, and engages all of us in helping to build the Northwest regional youth media community of 13- to 19-year-olds.

As part of the larger Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival, FFNW will take place on Saturday, November 16th, 2019.

Submissions open on Wednesday, May 1 and close on Monday, August 12.  It is FREE to submit via our website. Notifications will be made by October 1st.
