Film Festivals Around Town

Labor Day weekend sees the arrival of a trio of miniature film festivals on Seattle Screens. The Cinerama begins a two week series of 40 fan favorite films, each playing one time only in state of the art digital presentations. The SIFF Film Center hosts a short film festival in conjunction with Bumbershoot, featuring a number of shorts that played SIFF earlier this year. And Scarecrow Video dedicates its Screening Lounge to classic films by female directors from around the world.
