The TAMMIES film festival focuses on the artists who create the props, sets, costumes, special effects, and other behind-the-scenes elements of film and television production and is a celebration of the creative and technical work that goes into bringing stories to life on screen. Our festival includes an in-person screening of films that showcase the work of these artists, as well as panel discussions and workshops with industry professionals who share their experiences and insights about the art and craft of creating movie magic. 

Additionally, the festival features a small con where attendees can learn more about the tools, techniques, and technologies used by these artists and perhaps even try their hand at creating some of these elements themselves. Overall, our festival provides a unique opportunity for filmmakers, fans, and industry professionals to come together and appreciate the art and craftsmanship that goes into creating memorable and immersive film and television experiences.
