Seattle International Film Festival
Seattle, Washington / May 17-June 10, 2018 / siff.net / A, S, V
Coming into its 44th year, and consistently one of the most-attended by cinephiles and most-coveted by moviemakers, the Seattle International Film Festival is ascending to the ranks of the circuit’s most important festivals. The evidence is mounting: SIFF screens roughly 400 films over a packed month-long schedule, and boasts titan distributor representation from Amazon to Kino Lorber. And if you’re afraid your film won’t live up to all that pressure, you’ll be relieved to learn that SIFF routinely advances workshop projects to world premieres; three films featured in the festival’s Works-in-Progress Forum announced Berlinale and Göteborg premieres in January.
