We are the music makers. We are the dreamers of dreams. We are the cream in your coffee. With year-round programming, educational opportunities, and a staff full of cinema-mad riffraff, we are the SEATTLE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL.
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:
