The Tacoma Sister Cities International Film Festival is celebrating its 20th Anniversary! For 2022 we will feature films from 8 of our TSC countries, including Norway, Mexico, Croatia, Korea, Cuba, Morocco, Japan, and Taiwan. Our committees are excited to bring you a lineup that includes films both old and new—all critical favorites spanning the past 20 years and showcasing the filmmaking of our sister city countries. Each film showing will feature a cultural demonstration by the presenting committee. Kicking things off on Opening Night will be a special panel of notable Pacific Northwest filmmakers and advocates to speak about filmmaking on the Tacoma side of our Sister City relationships.
