The Northwest Flying Saucer Film Fest

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.
The NWFSFF is a part of The Chehalis Flying Saucer Party. This two-day celebration remembers 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 to the term “flying saucer”.
The 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.
This is your chance to get your UFO themed film shown to a live audience of film goers, filmmakers, and
UFO enthusiasts and to be part of the inaugural year of this film festival!
Category awards will include: Best Film, Best Documentary, Best Animation, Best Music Video and
Audience Choice.
$200 Cash Prize for Best Film.
$100 Cash Prize for Audience Choice (all submissions eligible)
Best Film winner will also be screened the following evening right before the classic flying saucer feature
film (TBA) during Day 2 of the Chehalis Flying Saucer Party.
All winners will receive a custom trophy and bragging rights.
All chosen submitters will receive a VIP pass to the 2023 Chehalis Flying Saucer Party.
