For the 2016 season, Celluloid is spreading its wings and will be screening films from around the region including Washington State, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, and British Columbia bringing the best of the Pacific Northwest to Bainbridge Island.

This year, the festival is taking on a new life with a new independent website, its own Facebook page, and an upgraded film submission & selection process designed to curate the highest quality collection of films available and to ensure an incredible experience for filmmakers and attendees alike.

Bringing it all together is this year’s Festival Director, Matt Longmire, a local filmmaker and Co-Director of the successful Seattle Web Fest, a web series themed film festival now heading into its 3rd year. Matt has worked in film in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, and locally with many of the Island’s non-profit and commercial organizations, even teaching local businesses how to create film & videos to grow their audience.

Festival Director, Matt Longmire, sits down with Barry Peters at Bainbridge Community Broadcasting to explain what's new and exciting about this year's Celluloid Film Festival.

In a second podcast recording with BCB, the 2016 Celluloid Selection Committee discusses what they look for in a great film and why this year's lineup is shaping up to be the best yet.
