Seattle Genre Film Festival To Open This September
MIFFF, a three day international showcase of animation, fantasy, horror, and science fiction cinema, is pleased to announce its inaugural launch September 18-20th, 2009 at the SIFF Cinema at McCaw Hall in Seattle, Washington USA.
As a genre film festival in Seattle, MIFFF is a unique entity. The Seattle Metropolitan Area is home to one of the largest film attending populations in the country. MIFFF is a venue that gives a voice to genre film fans through a wide spectrum of films and related programming.
Festival Co-Founder and current President Gabe de los Angeles sees a great opportunity for MIFFF: “We are thrilled to give Seattle and the Pacific Northwest audience something special in the film festival community, a showcase of international genre cinema. It’s incredible that we’re going to be able to host on this event on the historic grounds of Seattle Center”.
The first annual MIFFF plans to screen a variety of animation, fantasy, horror, and science fiction films over three days. The festival will include feature length films, short films, and genre specific documentaries. In addition to the film screenings, MIFFF plans to have panel discussions, Q & A’s with filmmakers, and after parties.
