MovieMaker has included us, the Seattle International Film Festival, as one of 50 festival worth the entry fee. Here’s what they had to say about us:

SIFF, celebrating its 40th year, is the largest audience film festival in the US with over 150,000 visitors over their whopping 25 days. With as long a history as that, notable premieres have been aplenty, including TrainspottingBraveheartBlood SimpleSlacker, and Donnie Darko.

Ya darn tootin’!

"Come on, something, come on in, don’t be shy, meet a guy, 
Pull up a chair!
The air is humming, 
And something great is coming!”
