TIGLFF hosted its 28th Film Festival from October 6th-14th. After kicking off the celebration with a successful launch party on September 30th, the organization wrapped up the weeklong festival with award presentations.

“We had a strong attendance on both sides of the bay,” said Executive Director Scott Skyberg. “Preliminary numbers show an increase in attendance, which is rewarding knowing that so many events were happening within the community during those nine days. We are very grateful to all of our sponsors, advertisers, community partners, members, and attendees in supporting the festival.”
