St. Matthew Episcopal Church in the Browns Point neighborhood of Tacoma will be hosting the inaugural Film Festival Browns Point on August 2 and 3. There will be film screenings from directors around the world, featuring stories that explore themes of social justice, environmental justice, freedom of religion, press, LQBTQ+/Gender, race, and more.

The director of Film Festival Browns Point, Francine Dennis, says of the weekend event, “The Film Festival Browns Point will engage the audience with the very essence of social justice issues within our immigrant nation by producing the stories that touch the heart and soul of what it means to be free. We want to get other parishes to show winning films. We want other dioceses to be able to repeat the process. We want to change the conversation to the good.”
