Attend the 18th Port Townsend Film Festival to see nearly 90 films in venues throughout downtown!

PTFF is thrilled to welcome Academy Award winning director Morgan Neville as the Special Guest for the 18th Annual Port Townsend Film Festival.

Neville, 49, won the 2013 Oscar for Best Documentary Film for 20 Feet From Stardom. The film follows the journey of four outstanding women who worked as backup singers behind some of America’s biggest stars. His following film, The Music of Strangers, is a lively account of cellist Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble that features top musicians from throughout the world playing instruments little heard in western music. Both films will be screened at this year’s festival. The Music of Strangers will be screened on Friday September 15th in the 250-seat American Legion Hall with Neville attending for Q&A. “20 Feet From Stardom will be screened, Saturday, Sept. 16, as the evening outdoor movie on Taylor Street and is open to the public.
