The countdown to the Third Annual Destiny City Film Festival has begun! The local film festival will be celebrating the art of cinematic storytelling from Aug. 26-27 at the historic Blue Mouse Theatre in Tacoma. The program will include 18 dynamic films from around the world, filmmaker Q&As, and recognition of Jeffrey Palmer, whose script Split Costs won the short screenplay competition.

All-Access VIP Passes grant guests access to all films for $45. The DCFF Punch Card is good for four general admission tickets for only $20. All tickets and passes can be purchased at, or at the Blue Mouse Theatre during normal operating hours.

Without further ado, here’s this year’s lineup:

Opening Night Film (7pm, Fri. 8/26) – IT HAD TO BE YOU, a whimsical romantic comedy about Sonia (Cristin Milioti, How I Met Your Mother, The Wolf of Wall Street, The Mindy Project), who embarks on a journey of self-discovery after a sudden proposal and subsequent ultimatum from her boyfriend.

Free Family Shorts Grouping (11:30am, Sat. 8/27) – with FREE donuts!

Local Films (with special guests in attendance!): BRIDES TO BE, RHINO, KANDAHAR INCIDENT, STARRY NIGHT and CAB ELVIS.

Closing Night Film (7pm, Sat. 8/27): BUDDYMOON, an offbeat comedy about David (David Giuntoli, 13 hours, Grimm), who has recently been dumped by his fiancé and decides to take his excitable German best man Flula on the honeymoon instead: a back-country trek in the remote mountains of Oregon

Thought-provoking documentaries: LEFT ON PURPOSE (1pm, Sat. 8/27) and THE OTHER KIDS (5pm, Sat. 8/27).

Enthralling short film packages, hilarious comedies, late-night films, and more! Check out the full festival schedule.
