The Seattle Transmedia & Independent Film Festival acts as a launchpad for emerging filmmakers and transmedia artists to provide opportunities to help digital storytellers attain their goals, gain distribution, press, or a wider audience for their projects.

STIFF serves up a potent blend of truly indie film and transmedia storytelling - last year's event showcased over 125 films/Transmedia projects - plus alternative music happenings, wild parties, and after-hours shenanigans. Festival organizers strive to put on a first-rate, smoothly run event and to provide opportunities to help digital storytellers attain their goals, gain distribution, press, or a wider audience for their projects. Artists in ten categories will be honored and take home a "STIFFY" award trophy.

Seattle Transmedia & Independent Film Festival is held at the Factory Luxe located in the Historic Rainier Brewery filled with screenings, networking opportunities and parties. It is a celebration of transmedia storytelling and independent film from the Northwest and the rest of the world.
