Hey! You! There! The official 37th Seattle International Film Festival scedule is online at siff.net for perusal and ticket-purchasing goodness! (the crowd roars)
Opening night is Thursday, May 19th – and I highly recommend you snap up tix to that immediately, and to see the ever-adorable and RAWR-worthy Ewan McGregor take the stage, because both will SELL OUT FAST. Not to mention, the film they’re showing at the EW tribute looks super-cute. You can buy tickets and plan your schedule online, or show up in person at the SIFF Box Offices at 400 9th Ave. N (or on the 2nd level of Pacific Place) to purchase. Once the festival is underway, you can pick up tickets at any SIFF venue. One more cool thing: iPhone users can use the SIFFter app – which is also online – to narrow down choices by genre, country, venue, day, and time, and purchase tickets right from your phone.
Other note-worthy picks: pay special attention to the Face the Music choices (a Damien Jurado performance!) and the NW Connections program, featuring the co-directorial debut of one Mr. Sean Nelson (!!!).
