Now celebrating its 40th Anniversary, Seattle International Film Festival creates experiences that bring people together to discover extraordinary films from around the world. Recognized as one of the top film festivals in North America, SIFF is the largest, most highly attended film festival in the United States. The 25-day festival is renowned for its wide-ranging and eclectic programming, presenting over 400 features, documentaries, and short films from over 70 countries each year.
Seattle’s love for film (Seattleites see more movies per capita than any other city in the nation) makes the city the most appropriate setting for new films to be seen, tested, and celebrated by everyone – film fan and filmmaker alike. The 40th Seattle International Film Festival runs at venues in Seattle and on the Eastside.
