Final weekend for SIFF at Shoreline!

The Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) run at Shoreline comes to an end this Sat., June 3, but there is still time to see some amazing films! Remember to get $2 off the ticket price of screenings at Shoreline when you use promo code: SHORELINE2017 while ordering at www.siff.net

There are some fantastic films still scheduled here at the main campus theater including WOODPECKERS, a hard-hitting but compassionate prison story from Santo Domingo. Shot on location with real inmates, WOODPECKERS tells the love story between two prisoners in neighboring institutions who communicate through an elaborate sign language known as woodpecking. The director, Jose Maria Cabral, is scheduled to attend the screening on Sat., June 3 at 1 p.m.
