ABOUT

Each October the Pickford showcases Doctober—a month-long documentary film festival dedicated to one of Bellingham’s proven favorite genres, the documentary. Doctober is the largest documentary festival in the Northwest, screening over 40 films in one month. For this festival the Pickford partners with local organizations to bring important issues to the screen; many screenings feature special guests, filmmakers, pre-screening receptions, and guided group discussions.
