Celluloid Bainbridge Film Festival
The 14th Annual Celluloid Bainbridge Film Festival runs October 20 & 21, 2012 at the Historic Lynwood Theatre. Guest Emcee: tj Faddis.
The 2012 Celluloid Bainbridge Film Festival is a FREE, two-day screening of films with a Bainbridge Island connection.
Following the simple guideline that films must have been filmed on Bainbridge or feature a past or present Bainbridge Islander in the cast or crew, the goals of the festival are to bring the Bainbridge community together to learn about and celebrate local filmmakers – both established and aspiring – and to provide a venue for the filmmakers to share their work with their community.

This year the Arts & Humanities Council is also pleased to present two special Celluloid Bainbridge events prior to the weekend screenings.

Celluloid Bainbridge History
Initially conceived by festival coordinator Kathleen Thorne as part of the Bainbridge Island Arts Walk, Celluloid Bainbridge quickly grew into its own event at The Historic Lynwood Theatre as, year after year, it managed to attract or unearth a day or more’s worth of movies that were either made on Bainbridge Island or featured a past or present islander in the cast or crew.
Highlights over the years – all with surprising Bainbridge connections – include Alan Rudolph’s Trouble in Mind, Woody Allen’s What’s Up, Tiger Lily?, Sherman Alexie’s Smoke Signals; The Last Detail, with Jack Nicholson; and the 3-D classic, It Came from Outer Space, plus nearly 300 other masterpieces, in all sizes and genres, from more than 260 contributors.
Celluloid Bainbridge would not be possible without the ongoing co-sponsorship and support of the Historic Lynwood Theatre. In 2012, Celluloid Bainbridge was awarded a Humanities Washington grant for the Celluloid Bainbridge Filmmakers Forum and in 2011, a Project Support Grant from the Washington State Arts Commission. In 2007 and 2008, the festival was awarded a two-year grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
