PORT TOWNSEND — The Port Townsend Film Festival is hosting its 12th annual Academy Awards fundraiser from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.
The party will be at the Northwest Maritime Center, 431 Water St., Port Townsend.
Tickets are $85 if purchased by 5 p.m. Friday, either online through ptfilmfest.com, by phone at 360-379-1333 or in person at the film festival office, 211 Taylor St., Suite 401A.
Tickets will be available at the door for $125.
The admission price includes an open bar, appetizers, champagne, dinner prepared by the Silverwater Cafe and dessert as the Academy Awards are simulcast on two big screens.
The commercials will not be shown, with that time used for raffles and auctions featuring radio personality Luke Burbank, a Port Townsend resident, as master of ceremonies.
Film Festival Executive Director Janette Force said Wednesday that about half of the 125 tickets are available, but she expects the event to sell out.
Several items will be auctioned. Prizes will be awarded to those who have the most correct guesses about the winners.
