Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

I really do feel so lucky every day to live in a city where film is so important. You guys, it's time for another film festival!!! Starting tomorrow, the Northwest Film Forum is hosting the 14th Annual Local Sightings Film Festival, which showcases awesome indie films made in the Northwest. 

The opening night film {Friday, 9/30 @7pm} is called The Oregonian, and it looks like a bloody horror film with Lynchian overtones from the trailer. It also stars Lindsay Pulsipher from True Blood (Jason's crazed half-cougar stalker), who I think is kind of amazing. Anyway, they had me at "70s shock horror cinema" and "screens with Vampire Hummingbirds: Pain the Nectar" (hawhaw): 

An Opening Night Party follows, packed with all the good things: booze, food, music, and dancing (I know, I know, this is Seattle! But the folks at NWFF always manage to shake a few tailfeathers). And then they launch into some indie-riffic goodness until the following Thursday {10/6}. Tickets are $6 per film for members, $10 for the general public, or $7 for seniors/kids/students. Or! You can buy a festival pass for $60 (NWFF members, $100 for non-members). That's for a whole lotta stuff, including features, shorts, parties, panels, and even art installations. Totallly a bargain! 

Other films screening that look fantastic: Light of Mine, Sound and Vision, The Wanteds, and every single short film listed. Seriously, cinema lovers, I am counting on you to DO THIS THING!
