Something strange is coming to the virtual world. In this multi-episode live event series presented by North Bend Film Fest and Northwest Film Forum, emerging storytellers will recount peculiar tales and bizarre happenings based on their own real life experiences. Each episode will feature a strange new theme and storytellers will be challenged to win over the audience with their storytelling skills. Audience Choice winners will be invited to participate in the official 2020 North Bend Film Festival storytelling hour this October!
Event hosted by Seattle-based storyteller, comedian and weirdo Emmett Montgomery — NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Seattle Weekly’s Best Comedian 2015, 2017, 2018 and host and curator of the community based “comedy” show Joketellers Union (with Brett Hamil) and the experimental basement/storytelling show The Magic Hat.
ISOLATION. Whether it’s because of lockdowns or not, everyone has experienced some form of loneliness in their life. In this edition, we’ll hear real life experiences from storytellers where they’ve overcome or in some cases, were consumed by the feeling of solitude.
