The shorts are coming! Seattle Shorts Film Festival is November 11-13th, 2016 at SIFF Film Center.

Known for bringing Hollywood to the Northwest, Seattle Shorts will return for the 6th annual festival this fall with well-known guests, speakers, and exciting new films. Seattle Shorts is the only regional festival dedicated to bringing brilliant short films to Seattle audiences. The festival continues to grow — already the 2016 festival has attracted a record 1400 submissions, and has expanded a full day to become a three day event.

This year’s program includes a special twist: opening night will be a feature film! Before I Disappear is a feature-length adaptation of director Shawn Christensen’s 2012 Oscar-winning short film, CURFEWFATIMA PTACEK Headshot

Lead actress (and voice of Dora the Explorer) Fatima Ptacek will attend opening night. Other highlights include a program of female-directed films; a block of music videos; and a panel discussion called “Navigating the Film Festival Circuit” with Seattle Shorts alumni. Look for the full program announcement in early August. Tickets and more information at seattleshort.org.
