Greetings Earthlings! The Northwest Flying Saucer Film Fest showcases short films exploring the UFO genre and takes place in the town where the UFO phenomenon began over 75 years ago – Chehalis, WA. As part of The Chehalis Flying Saucer Party which celebrates pilot Kenneth Arnold’s historic flight from the Chehalis Airport on June 24th, 1947 when he encountered a formation of UFOs in a cultural touchstone that gave birth the term “flying saucer”, NWFSFF is looking for Northwest filmmakers (WA, OR, ID residents) to submit their UFO themed short films, documentaries, animations, or music videos to be shown on September 22nd, 2023 at the beautiful McFiler’s Chehalis Theater.
