Today marks the first day of the 44th Annual Seattle International Festival. As a 25-day event, this festival features more than 400 films from 90 countries, with over 145,000 attendees. It is no surprise that it has become the largest and most highly-attended film festival. The mission of the festival is to bring individuals together to explore one-of-a-kind films from all around the world.
This festival was created to be fun and easy. You can view the schedule for daily screenings and browse films by genre including action, history, comedy, nature, food and so much more! Once a film catches your eye, you can purchase an individual ticket for $14. However, there are discounts for weekday matinees, students, seniors and Seattle International Film Festival Members. Once purchased, you can avoid the lines and print your ticket at home! If preferred, you can also download the SIFF Ticket App and have the cinema staff scan your purchased ticket from your phone. This year, there will be 16 venues to host the festival. A few of these venues include House Studios, Lincoln Square, Ark Lodge Cinemas, Triple Door and Nordic Heritage Museum.
To celebrate and honor films, the Seattle International Film Festival presents tributes, galas, live music and film parties. This year, you can catch a tribute to Ethan Hawke, an up close and personal interview with Melanie Lynskey and watch a documentary that focuses on Fred Rogers and his influences on children. To best plan your visit, you can view a complete list of the special events and details.
