Friday October 2 – Thursday October 8

Featured Film:

The Vancouver International Film Festival

We’re still in Vancouver for a few more days. It’s been a great festival so far, and we’ve managed to watch and write and podcast about a number of films that already have upcoming release dates on Seattle Screens, including Guy Maddin’s The Forbidden Room, Hou Hsiao-hsien’s The Assassin, and Rick Alverson’s Entertainment. We’ll have much more coming this week, including looks at new films from Jafar Panahi, Jia Zhangke and Sylvia Chang. Where to follow us.
