National Film Festival for Talented Youth - NFFTY
The National Film Festival for Talented Youth is lifting off its annual celebration of sprouting cinematic skills with an opening-night gala held at Seattle's iconic Cinerama Theater, followed by an after-party in the Space Needle. Gala-goers will strut or crabwalk down a red carpet to the screening of short films produced by rising filmmakers, all 22 years old or younger. After the screening, hop onto a complimentary shuttle to the Space Needle, where Volvo Cars of North America will host an all-ages after-party. Perched prettily atop the Seattle skyline, guests will revel in well-suspended entertainment, gratis hors d'oeuvres, and a cash bar as they mingle with filmmakers, actors, and fellow revelers. Each ticket entitles its holder to claim up to two limited-edition festival posters, ideal for decorating the walls of home theaters or keeping warm while your blanket's in the wash.
