Today we can finally announce that we have been invited to premiere MIDDLE MAN at the 42 annual Seattle International Film Festival.
This news has been under wraps for a while. But we can now say how thrilled we are to be premiering at such a major festival. The film will premiere Friday, June 10th and again on Sunday, June 12. We have has also been asked to be part of a director panel on Saturday, June 11.
The SIFF 25-day festival is renowned for its eclectic programming with over 450 features, short films and documentaries from over 80 countries annually.
It is the largest and most highly attended film festival in the US.
MIDDLE MAN has been selected to be part of it’s “CATALYST” program that closes the festival. Catalyst is a special selection of 5-6 films that celebrates new voices, original visions, and up-and-coming talent in U.S. Independent filmmaking.
It is quite an honor for us.
We have also been selected to participate in the NEW AMERICAN CINEMA COMPETITION which features a selection of 12 directors who SIFF believes are emerging talents. For this competition the SIFF programmers choose the films based on distinctive vision, a unique voice, and promising future. The films must also be without US distribution. (So lucky for us, we don’t have a deal. Ha!!)
There will be other opportunities to see the film coming up including a showing in Chicago in July (hopefully) NY soon after and another key premiere in LA in September. As well as other festivals to come. Thanks for your continued support.
