Hosted by Pickford Film Center and Make.Shift Art Space, the third annual Bellingham Music Film Festival is a showcase of music through the medium of film. The films include music videos and shorts all focused around music-inspired subject matter. The Bellingham Music Film Festival is an inclusive space inviting both student and professional filmmakers from both the Pacific Northwest and international landscape.
Located between Vancouver and Seattle, Bellingham, Washington has always been a hub for music and film. BMFF would like to celebrate the union of the two by screening exclusively music-related films and connecting this community on a global scale.
