Pickford Film Center makes the best movies accessible to wide audiences 365 days a year, including special events and festivals in addition to regular screenings. Each October the Pickford showcases Doctober—a month-long documentary film festival dedicated to one of Bellingham’s proven favorite genres, the documentary. Doctober is the largest documentary festival in the Northwest, screening over 40 films in one month. For this festival, the Pickford partners with local organizations to bring important issues to the screen; many presentations feature special guests, filmmakers, pre-screening receptions, and guided group discussions. 

This year the festival opens on Friday, October 1st and runs through October 28th. The festival schedule will be unveiled on September 17th and tickets for all Doctober films will be available for Pickford Film Center members at that time. Tickets will go live to the public on Monday, September 24th. Doctober is a very popular event, so for first access sign
