Film Fellowships

Placeholder imageIn 2015, the Port Townsend Film Festival expanded into filmmaker collaboration by sharing our greatest resource- hospitality!

PTFF will award a select number of filmmakers with the gift of time to work on projects, develop their films and create connections with communities on the Olympic Peninsula. In return, filmmakers will collaborate with Festival staff to broaden year-round programming.

"We are citizens of the world, and filmmakers are the vibrant storytellers that connect each of us to that world," says Janette Force, Festival executive director. "By placing filmmakers at the center of our year-round work, we all benefit from the connections and stories that result. “

Housing for this year's recipients of the PTFF Filmmaker Fellowship, Andrew Perez is living in a furnished home near the Port Townsend airport from January through February. He wrote and starred in "Bastards y Diablos", one of our feature films in the 2016 festival. He is currently working on new screenplay.
