Seattle International Film Festival 5.22.2014

I normally write about the music scene, but I’m crossing over this time into the world of independent film.  We had the pleasure of attending the opening night of SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival) Short Films at The Uptown cinema on Queene Anne.   Tony Fulgham, the lead singer of Seattle’s Jackrabbit, is a renaissance guy.  He not only plays kick-ass country rock, but is a creative director of World Famous Inc.  He wrote and directed a short called Box Walk that was featured at the SIFF Opening Night, directed a second movie called Secret which will play May 26, and directed the official SIFF trailer (see video, above).

Seven films were presented on Opening night. The audience was encouraged to vote, using tear-away ballots, numbered 1-5 (5 being awesome) for each movie.  Our favorites were, of course, Box Walk and another called The Phone Call, both of which were gripping, poignant and brought me to tears.  All seven films were memorable, creative and very different from each other.

I would recommend the Shorts for anyone who wants a taste of some creative independent films, but doesn’t necessarily want to sit through a full-length feature.

  1. SIFF–that is one of the things I miss about not living in Seattle anymore. It sounds like you had wonderful time!
