Another premiere for The Lord of Catan! This time, it will be Seattle, at the Seattle Film Shorts festival, on November 15, 2014 — many thanks to the director, Daniel, for letting me know! The press release is posted below.
The 4th annual Seattle Shorts Film Festival will bring another round of outstanding short films and filmmakers to Seattle this November. Three screenings on November 15th at the SIFF Film Center will showcase the best new work of local, US, and international filmmakers. 13 of the 17 films shown will be Seattle premieres. The festival will also feature Q&A sessions with visiting artists, networking events the weekend of Nov. 15th, press opportunities for filmmakers, and awards by a celebrity jury and the audience.
Seattle Shorts Film Festival previously screened two Oscar qualifying shorts, Do I Have to Take Care of Everything? (2013) and Curfew (2012), which won the Academy Award for best live action picture. We are thrilled to present another exciting lineup of local, national and international films this year, including: The Lord of Catan, featuring Amy Acker and Fran Kranz (stars in Joss Whedon’s 2013 Much Ado About Nothing); The Hero Pose, shot in Washington by local filmmaker Mischa Jakupcak and staring Nikki Hahn and Chaske Spencer (Winter in the Blood and Twilight); Tobacco Burn, a beautifully shot student film set before the Civil War and based on an oral history from the Works Progress Administration’s collection of slave narratives; Water, Ice, Snow, which documents the work of artist/educator Sasha Sicurella with children in Mongolia; The First Hope, a Star Wars themed coming of age story starring Lili Reinhart and Davis Desmond that will be shown in 35mm; One Please, written and directed by Jesse Burks and starring horror icon Michael Berryman; and The Wood House, featuring Alicia Goranson of Roseanne and Boys Don’t Cry.
Festival screenings will be held in three blocks at the SIFF Film Center in Seattle Center, Saturday November 15th. Tickets can be purchased through www.siff.net.
