It’s a wrap! The imaginary team has officially survived the 40th year of the Seattle International Film Festival! Please enjoy our archived coverage of this year’s fest May 15 – June 8, 2014.

Film-lovers imaginary embracey, imaginary rich, Roxie Rider, and me wrote about all the films that make us happy—and a few that didn’t, so much. You know the drill! We like movies. Movies are great. And SIFF made it easy for us to digest a whole bunch of ‘em all at once with other people who like movies and think they are great too.

The 40th Seattle International Film Festival kicked off Thursday, May 15 with a screening of Jimi: All is By My Side (starring Outkast’s André Benjamin as Jimi Hendrix), followed by its always fabulous Opening Night Gala. Director John Ridley (the Academy Award®-winning screenwriter of 12 Years a Slave) attended, and there was food and drinks and dancing! The Closing Night Gala on June 8 was rad too, and we thoroughly enjoyed The One I Love, even though we can’t really talk about it because mentioning ANY details would totally ruin it for you guys. Sorry!

We hope you enjoyed your SIFF’ing this year! See you in line in 2015.
