About Make Believe Seattle
Make Believe Seattle is a genre film festival dedicated to shining a light on the best in horror, sci-fi, fantasy, animation, and everything else we couch under that blanket term “genre.” There are few areas of the country more steeped in the mysterious and fantastical than Seattle, and we hope to shine a dark light on that energy that courses through the PNW’s veins. Striving to be a genre festival for everyone, our diverse and unpredictable programming aims to take even the most ardent genre fans out of their comfort zones. The first Make Believe Seattle Film Festival takes place March 23-26, 2023. For more information, visit, on Instagram and Facebook @makebelieveseattle, and on Twitter @makebelieveff.
