The Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) is the largest film festival in the United States, with nearly 140,000 people attending each year. The 25-day event held each May is renowned for presenting over 400 features, short films, and documentaries gathered from more than 85 countries.
Since the 1970s, SIFF has been promoting cross-cultural exchange through cinema by bringing people together to discover extraordinary films from around the world. This year, Seattle International Film Festival kicks off for the 45th time.
Goethe Pop Up Seattle and the Honorary Consulates of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland are partnering with SIFF to present the festival’s official selection of German-language films. Watch an array of recent releases covering various genres, including documentary, comedy, and drama, and experience how much German cinema has to offer.
Please join us for the screening of Caroline Link’s comedy All About Me
(2019). Based on an autobiographical novel by German comedian Hape Kerkeling, Link’s film centers on nine-year old Hans-Peter who, despite traumatic experiences, is blessed with a talent to make others laugh. Marvelously handled by Oscar®-winning director Caroline Link (Nowhere In Africa), All About Me
is an entertaining, sincere coming-of-age story about the therapeutic potential of laughter.
Additional screenings take place on May 19 at 3:30pm at SIFF Cinema Egyptian and on May 25 at 6:00pm at Shoreline Community College.
