THAT’S A WRAP ON 2018!!! The 44th Annual Seattle International Film Festival kicked off May 17 with its Opening Night Gala, featuring a screening of Isabel Coixet’s The Bookshop, a 50’s period piece starring Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, and the exquisite Patricia Clarkson — and wrapped up Sunday, June 10 with Gus Van Sant’s Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot.

Team imaginary did their very best to bring you coverage, interviews, and reviews for as many of the 433 films in this year’s festival as we could! imaginary Amie, imaginary embracey, Roxie Rider, and imaginary rich hit the red carpet, attended screenings and parties, and SIFF’ed until we couldn’t SIFF any more.
