con in 60 secondsAbout the Contest

Are you a talented filmmaker? Eager amateur movie producer? Just passionate about the con and have a video-taking device collecting dust?

We want to see what you can capture at Northwest Fan Fest!

You’re going to have a great time and be a part of some amazing stuff, so get out there with your camera and make some memories. [We also want to use your video to show people how great it was for next year!]

We’re even awarding prizes!
