Film Festival @ Browns Point aims to show films with solutions to various social justice issues for its inaugural event.

“We wanted to change the conversation from what’s not working in society to what is working,” said Francine Dennis, director of the film festival.

According to a press release from the film festival, they are currently considering films for the first festival, which will be held on Aug. 2 and 3.

These films, both brief and long come from all over the country.

The film fest will have both outdoor and indoor showings, so during some show times you can bring a blanket and watch under the summer evening sky. The event is free and open to the public, and will offer free popcorn to moviegoers as well.

The film festival will take place at St. Matthew Episcopal Church at 6800 East Side Drive NE in Tacoma.

During the first showing on August 2, films will be shown at 5 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, will showcase a “Cartoons for Kids” show at 10 a.m. with a $5 pancake breakfast; the regular film show times are the same as Aug. 2.
