Seattle International Film Festival 2011 = Success
For those of you that made it out to SIFF 2011 this year, it was a huge success. People of all stature come from around the world to see the films presented in those few weeks, even the filmmakers, directors & so on come to do Q&A’s after some of the films. We had big stars come such as Ewan McGregor to promote his film Beginners which turned out to be a success by what I heard. I was unable to make that film but out of the films I did see my 2 top favorite films of the festival were White Irish Drinkers & Funkytown. Both of these films had good story lines, entertaining actors and the endings were not necessarily predictable and kept the audiences attention. Success for these two films, if all pans out I could see these films making it to the big screen. We all know that each year there are those films that do make it further than a festival and give the crew of a film a big break in the movie industry. Be sure to check out my short documentary/local tour of SIFF 2011.
