SIFF 2011

That’s a wrap! The 37th Seattle International Film Festival concluded Sunday, 6/12/2011 with a screening of Life in a Day and a rockin’ Closing Night Gala.

This year there were over 450 feature films, shorts, and events – all crammed into 4 weeks of awesomeness – and TIG’s SIFF Team covered as much as possible. We brought you our favorite picks, recommended events (including some exciting Face the Music programs), interviews, and more as we navigated the festival’s cinematic landscape for the best of the best – and don’t worry, we’ll keep this page up for reference so you can remember what we loved – and didn’t so much.

Until next year – viva la SIFF!
