Filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard once said, "The cinema is truth at 24 frames per second," making slow-mo sports replays and sped-up Benny Hill gags nothing but cruel, cruel lies. Get the real deal with today's Groupon: for $25, get an Enthusiast Membership to Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) (a $55 value). The Enthusiast Membership is tax-deductible and scores you:

  • Discounted tickets to SIFF Cinema and Festival ($5, beginning November 16)
  • Early-bird discounts for Festival tickets and passes (beginning November 1)
  • Invites to complimentary preview screenings
  • A popcorn punch card
  • Three sample issues of Seattle Met

Your one-year membership must be activated within three months.

SIFF illuminates the human experience with cinematic stories told from the perspectives of a variety of cultures, while giving you fresh ways to enjoy cherished film favorites. Subtitle junkies can get their foreign fix with the latest works of boot-shaped talkies at the New Italian Cinema Festival, running November 16–20, or overload their inner child with the sense-blending synesthesia of the 1971 classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory in Smell-O-Vision, playing December 10–12. The Dark Side of Oz showcases the surreal synchronicity of The Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon on December 3 and 4, while the film plays with its original soundtrack on December 4 and 5. Otherwise, wear way too tight pants and bring your juggling balls to the Labyrinth Quote-Along, which puts a Rocky Horror twist on the 1986 Jim Henson fantasy with quote-along subtitles (all together now, "you remind me of the babe…"), sing-along lyrics, and a sock-puppet station in the lobby where you can make your own merry band of goblin-muppets.

Seattle International Film Festival's elevated escapism will expand your silver-screen horizons and instill a deep love for the 20th century's greatest art form. And, with a whole new film center coming in the new year, your oasis for international fare will get even oasisier. Invite along a fellow film buff to the SIFF and delight in how filmmakers from all over the world translate their stories into moving picture-radios.

Reviews

The Stranger enthusiastically posts updates and reviews of ongoing and upcoming SIFF screenings. Yelpers give SIFF a near-perfect 4.5 stars:

  • The biggest film festival in North America. Not only that, it's aiming for the general public rather than the industry. Always good movies. – Henrik B., Yelp
  • It's fun to pick movies from the website and take your chances on foreign films you may not see otherwise. – Angie K., Yelp
