Pacific Northwest Multi-Cultural Readers Series & Film Festival

August 20-22, 2021

Welcome to the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

The PNMC Festival provides an artistic platform for artists of Color and Indigenous Origins to give them exposure to other artists and to the general public. At the PNMC Festival, these innovators can showcase their new and/or modified plays, episodic scripts, media, and digital projects.

We assist with artistic development, arts appreciation and audience development. We’ll also host workshops, panel discussions and conversations with diverse experts in stage, in film, and in digital creation.

Due to the pandemic, our inaugural festival will be completely virtual. However, we are preparing for an in-person festival for August 2023, so stay tuned.
