21st Annual Film Festival Starts Tomorrow, February 16th

Doors to Everett’s 21st Annual Film Festival open tomorrow at 5:30 pm at the Everett Performing Arts Center. The night kicks off to a festive gala with David Lee Howard playing live on his guitar, while you enjoy hors d’oeuvres, desserts and drinks. After being seated at 7:00 pm expect two film shorts followed by a feature documentary, coupled with a Q&A session with Jack Gunter, a local artist from Camano Island.

Events resume Saturday, with doors re-opening in 12:30 pm. Expect the same format of two shorts followed by a film and Q&A, but with the added bonus of an intermission happy hour, featuring menu samples from local Everett restaurants.
