Everett Film Festival was initially considered a women's festival. Though it continues to celebrate the strength, humor and diversity of women through film, it now has a wider view and welcomes men and women to submit their films, said Teresa Henderson, director of the film festival.
The opening night feature film, "Unmistaken Child," follows the journey of a young Tibetan monk who is asked to search for the reincarnation of his spiritual leader who has died.
The second day of the festival offers audiences the story of how six oncologists battle gynecological cancers while performing in a rock 'n' roll band, "No Evidence of Disease." The film, of the same name, is upbeat and powerful.
Filmmaker Lucy Ostrander will be on hand to talk about her movie, "Honor and Sacrifice," about how Japanese brothers came to fight on opposite sides of World War II. (See next week's A&E for a story with Lucy Ostrander.)
Tickets to both festival days, including the gala, are $50. Tickets for Feb. 21 only are $25 and for Feb. 22 only are $30. The Everett Performing Arts Center box office is at 2710 Wetmore Ave. Or call 425-257-8600.
