Don't miss this unique showcase of world cinema -- and the social event on the season! Now in its 19th year, the The Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival is the largest event of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, showcasing the latest and greatest in queer film, from major motion picture premieres to independent work from emerging talents. The festival provides unique opportunities for visiting and local filmmakers to engage with audiences and interact with over 10,000 attendees. Highlights include Blackbird, directed by Patrik-Ian Polk; Sundance-favorite Appropriate Behaviour, directed by and starring Desiree Akhavan; and Club King, a documentary about infamous NY and LA club promoter Mario Diaz. The lineup also includes locally filmed Never by Brett Allen Smith, starring Zelda Williams and Zachary Booth (Keep the Lights On); and The Dark Place produced by Seattle-based Carlos Pedraza.
