What is the Tacoma Film Alliance
The Tacoma Film Alliance is a collective of filmmakers and artists in the Greater Puget Sound area that are passionate about making films, and want to have fun doing it. We are a registered non-profit with the state of Washington and strive to support and promote motion picture artists via resources, networking, and education.
Why are things a bit buggy and incomplete feeling?
Because it is. We're working hard to get this updated and fully functional as soon as possible. We have a lot of great features in mind, so if you could bare with us while we get through the hard parts we'd really appreciate it.
Why use the Tacoma Film Alliance website?
While we are just getting started, we have a lot of goals for the site. We want it to become the best resource for all of your filmmaking needs. This includes databases full of the local actors/actresses, writers, directors, editors, audio engineers, music supervisors, etc. The more people sign up, the more people you'll be able to find! So be sure to tell all of your motion picture artists friends about it.
Are you just trying to create another crappy social media site?
No. This isn't Facebook and we don't ever want it to be. What we do want is for this site to become your resource for finding local talent and shoot locations. We'll also be communicating all of the fun events and happenings that we'll be hosting!
How can people find me for their next project?
In order for you to be searchable in our database, you must fill out your information located on the
my info page (login or register!).
Once you fill in your information and update your headshot, you'll be listed in our talent database.
Note: You will not show up in this list until you fill in your information. It is important to do so!
What's the WAM?
The Wait A Minute Film Competition presented by the Tacoma Film Alliance invites filmmakers to produce a 1 minute film within a 1 week time frame. A theme or common element is given to include in the film, and those who enter are turned loose to create their masterpieces! The film can be anything; a short story, a trailer, a music video, a commercial, or whatever you can think of. Once the films are turned in, our panel of judges set to work on viewing the films. Awards are given to the winners at the viewing party. The last 3 years the WAM has partnered with Friday Night Frights and The Blue Mouse Theatre to allow filmmakers to see their entries on the big screen prior to their monthly Friday Night Frights event. Each year, filmmakers have a blast both making their films and seeing them on screen in front of an audience. It is truly a unique and fun event in the Tacoma area.
