Looking for an easy escape from the urban sprawl?  Ellensburg offers a laid-back atmosphere that’s fun-filled for the entire family with shops, museums, kid-friendly restaurants, hiking, fishing camping and more!

Sometimes it’s difficult to seek out appropriate spots for our kids to experience art and culture. But, in Ellensburg, exposing our children to the arts isn’t a difficult task. In fact, creative expression is right at your fingertips and no place more so than at the Ellensburg Film Festival, one of the biggest festivals in the northwest.

Since 2004, the Ellensburg Film Festival has attracted thousands of movie lovers from toddlers to seniors. With the Festival’s diverse selection of film, from documentaries like Play Like a Lion: The Legacy of Maestro All Akbar Khan to the feature length film, Beasts of the Southern Wild, this film festival is not one to miss. In fact, you’ll find some of the best cinematic creations that circulate other major festivals like Cannes, Toronto, Berlin and New York.

This year, the Ellensburg Film Festival runs from October 4-6 with screenings, events and ceremonies and live music throughout the weekend. Tickets to the festival are reasonably low with single tickets starting at just $6, which makes the Festival affordable to bring your whole family to.

You and your little cinephiles-in-training will have the opportunity to see films of both American and Foreign cinema. Plus, the Ellensburg Film Festival also screens the works of local community members and students where you’ll get a glimpse into the area’s budding talent.

Buy your tickets early to join in on one of the northwest’s premiere film festivals and treat your little movie-goers to an experience they’ll be sure to remember.
