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 The Innocent
(2018), Simon Jaquemet’s Swiss drama about religion, science, delusion and reality. The film follows a devoutly religious woman working as a scientist. When she meets an old lover who just got released from prison, her life convictions are threatened. At this point, the film picks up elements of the surreal and imaginative.
A second screening take place on May 24 at 4:15pm at SIFF Cinema Egyptian.
