Hey guys? I know most of y’all are wrapped up in SIFF, but I wanted to remind you that Seattle’s True Independent Film Festival starts today! I’m certainly not complaining that Seattle has TWO awesome film festivals at the same time, but of course it’s always a challenge to fit some STIFF films into an already packed SIFF schedule. However, this year, I’m determined to try.
Running from Friday, 6/4 through Sunday, June 13, STIFF packs in 160 shorts & features (many by local directors) at 4 venues – AND you can see all of them for the low All Access Pass price of $50! The lineup looks great this year, but of course I zeroed in on some the horror films.
The Book of Zombie: Mormon! Zombies!! Hell yes!!! Screens Monday, June 7, 1:30pm at The Rendevous (Jewelbox Theater), and again Friday, June 11, 9:15pm at the Northwest Film Forum.
Hotel Chelsea: A J-horror/serial killer mash-up that takes place in NY’s Chelsea Hotel? ‘Nuff said. Screens Wednesday, June 9, 7:20pm at Northwest Film Forum.
Kiss the Abyss: Re-Animator meets self-aware Zombie! I’m already in to it, just based on the blood in the preview. Screens Monday, June 7, 7:20 at Northwest Film Forum.
