Report: Port Orchard Film Festival to relocate, rebrand

Film festival will move to Historic Roxy Theatre in Bremerton

PORT ORCHARD — In a Facebook statement posted Tuesday, organizers of the Port Orchard Film Festival announced the three-year-old event has a new name and a new home.

Beginning next year, the fledgling film festival will be renamed the West Sound Film Festival and will operate out of the Historic Roxy Theatre in Bremerton, which recently completed renovations and has reorganized as a nonprofit organization.

Film festival director Amy Camp Coull wasn’t immediately available to provide additional information.

The Port Orchard Film Festival’s home until now has been the Dragonfly Cinema in Port Orchard, whose operators closed its doors this spring.

Although an effort was made following the theater’s closure to generate action in reorganizing the Dragonfly’s business model, nothing has transpired since an initial meeting of invited community members took place on May 29.
