PORT TOWNSEND — The Port Townsend Film Festival has announced the first of three clues to the identity of the 2014 special guest.

The first to identify the guest star correctly will win a film festival T-shirt, hat and photo opportunity with the special guest when he or she arrives at the Sept. 19-21 festival.

The 2014 festival — the 15th anniversary of the celluoid celebration — will screen about 80 films throughout the three days at a variety of venues in Port Townsend.

Each year, an acting or director star is invited to be the special guest at the festival.

Past guests have included Tony Curtis, Eva Marie Saint, Cloris Leachman, Patricia Neal, Malcolm McDowell, Dyan Cannon, Karen Allen and Bruce Dern.

The Guess the Guest contest encourages participants to filter through obscure hints to claim a bragging-rights prize.

Three clues are released, one each week in print and on the film festival website.

The second clue will be released June 11, the third June 18.

The special guest and the winner of the contest will be announced June 25.

The first clue:

A wordsmith, a storyteller,

Acting and directing as well,

Noveling with noble themes

Fierce challenges to social dreams.

Myth and magic can, too, prevail

In wondrous weaving of these tales.

Cross dabbling from film to rock

What springs to mind made fans gawk.

Guesses can be sent to or mailed or hand-delivered to the film festival office at 211 Taylor St., Suite 401-A, Port Townsend, WA 98368.

Entries require a name, mailing address, daytime phone and email address.

For more information, visit or phone 360-379-1333.
