Gala & Ticket Reservations

“Reel Life 96” is the City of Lakewood’s first Short Film Competition, and we are thrilled to invite you to a special Screening Gala that will feature 33 uniquely crafted films submitted by filmmakers from all over Western Washington. The filmmakers had 96 hours to create a film that was 5 minutes or less in length. Each film included 3 required elements; a line of dialogue, a prop, and a specific action.

Join in the fun, watch some great short films, and help us celebrate these artist’s unique achievements in film at the Screening Gala Event at McGavick Conference Center.

As our special guests, you have the opportunity to reserve two free tickets (one for yourself and one for a guest.)

Ticket reservations will close on March 17th. Hurry, as we expect tickets to move quickly.
