EverOut & The Stranger Present: Five Events to Put on Your Radar This Week

September 21, 2022

Here at EverOut Seattle, we believe in the importance of supporting our local community as much as we can, particularly when it comes to the arts and entertainment. That's why we're proud to be sponsoring these upcoming events in the Emerald City. Read on for all the details, or check out our Stranger & EverOut Presents calendar.



Local Sightings Film Festival Add to a List
Back in 2015, Charles Mudede wrote, "What is this city becoming? What have we lost in the rush and thrust of all these new developments? To whom does this growing city belong? The brilliant Local Sightings film festival will show films that reveal the answers to these questions, through features, shorts, and animation that are born here or hereabouts. There's much to see and much to talk about." The festival returns for its 25th anniversary this year with more experimental films, workshops, and gatherings.
(Northwest Film Forum, Capitol Hill, pricing varies)



Derek Sheen, Shanna Christmas, and Paul Curry Add to a List
Prepare for serious laughs—this night of comedy features laughable favorites like "cuddly mess" Derek Sheen, "edgy/classy" comic and Tropical Smoothie podcast host Shanna Christmas, and devil demon baby boy Paul Curry.
(Here-After at the Crocodile, Belltown, $20)



U District $4 Food Walk and Street Party Add to a List
Meander through the U District and sample $4 bites from over 60 participating bars, cafes, and restaurants. You'll also get to check out live music performances, a breakdance battle, and other entertainment on the Xfinity Main Stage and groove to DJ tunes at a street party with $4 cocktail and drink specials.
(University District, free entry)



Orcas Island Film Festival Add to a List
Over 30 buzzy flicks will screen as part of Orcas Island's annual film festival, which Stranger senior staff writer Charles Mudede describes as "the crème de la crème of the first-tier festival circuit."
(Orcas Island, $190 - $500)



Seattle Queer Film Festival Add to a List
A vital voice in the Seattle film scene since '96, the Seattle Queer Film Festival is now presented in a hybrid format, showcasing a wide range of stories from diverse queer communities. Expect in-person and virtual screening options, plus buzzy parties, meetups, filmmaker panels, workshops, and great conversation. (Itching for a sneak peek at this year's queer-centered cinema? Check out SQFF's preview party Add to a List this Sunday).
(Various locations, $50 - $200)
