Seattle Int'l Film Festival
Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) Group provides innovative and distinctive film programs throughout the entire year. Committed to educational programs that provide filmgoers the information and opportunities to raise not only their knowledge, but passion for film to an even higher level. The group is dedicated to the exploration of cinema as art form, and our year-round film programs celebrate, examine and debate films and the filmmaking crafts, to expand and deepen the public's understanding of cinema as an art form.
The best-known program is the Seattle International Film Festival. Started in 1976 SIFF is Spring's high point. It brings Seattle audiences a chance to participate in the largest and most highly attended film festival in the country. Each year SIFF attracts directors, actors, and critics from all over the world, who participate in special events, post-film Q&A sessions, and provocative forums.
SIFF is one of only seven film festivals in North America chosen to qualify films for consideration in the Independent Spirit Awards
