Seattle is a great town to be a film buff. Every year, numerous cinemas in town host the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) for 3+ weeks. This year’s festival is right around the corner, running May 19-June 12.
With films playing at 10+ theaters over a few weeks, there are certainly some flicks to spark your interest. Comedies, experimental films, sci-fi, dramas and more will be on the big screen, with 400+ films and 50+ countries represented.
There are so many movies, dates and venues to choose from that visiting their calendar and searching by film genre and date is probably the easiest way to figure out what to see. You can, and in many cases should, buy tickets ahead of time, either for individual movies or they have special deals for film buffs wanting to see a bunch of films.
