Please join The Foundation on Friday, May 24, 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. for wine tasting, hors-d’oeuvres, a glass of wine, a meet-and-greet, and photo ops followed by the screening of our Opening Night film, Brittany Runs a Marathon, from 7:30 – 9:00 PM. This film was the Winner of the 2019 US Dramatic Audience Award at Sundance Film Festival, directed by Paul Downs Colaizzo, starring Jillian Bell, Michaela Watkins, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Lil Rel Howery, and Micah Stock.

Tickets are $50 ($15 of the ticket price is tax deductible) and include wine tasting, hors d’oeuvres, glass of wine, meet-and-greet, and the film. Proceeds benefit the Performing Arts and Digital Film-making Scholarship awarded to students each year by the Shoreline Community College Foundation.

Want to volunteer to work concessions at SIFF films?
Have fun serving popcorn and candy and get 2 free movie tickets! Seattle International Film Festival is coming to Shoreline for the fourth consecutive year this May 24th through June 2nd.

The Foundation is handling the concessions and needs volunteers to work one shift (about 4-5 hours) through the duration of the festival. As a thank you for your time, each volunteer will receive two vouchers to SIFF films good at Shoreline and any of the other SIFF locations.

Each volunteer will also need to arrive on time or early to receive orientation of use of the Ipad sales tool and popcorn popper.

Concessions shifts are generally noon to 5 p.m. and 5 to 10 p.m. on weekends and Memorial Day and from 5 to 10 p.m. on weeknights. If interested in volunteering, please sign up at

Please do not sign up to volunteer during a film you would like to see as you won’t be able to go into the theater during your shift.

Concessions include popcorn, candy, and nonalcoholic drinks. The separate bar includes beer and wine. You must be at least 21 years of age with an ID to serve alcohol and not attending Shoreline Community College as a student.
