This Thursday, join the 42nd Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) for a screening of Being 17, a french film about teenagers who experience an erotic awakening after bullying each other. The film marks an exciting collaboration between directors André Téchiné (Wild Reeds) and Céline Sciamma (Girlhood). The screening begins at 7pm at the SIFF Cinema Egyptian. An actor from the movie, Corentin Fila, is scheduled to attend.

Following the screening, a different kind of fun will commence from 9pm to midnight at the Baltic Room for the ridiculously-named yet always treasured festival event, Being 17: Gay-La. At The Baltic Room, DJs spin awesome dance music in a split-level venue with multiple bars and thus multiple reasons to get your party on. Featuring catering from Poquito’s, Gay-la offers an awesome opportunity to #LightTheSIFFUp before the festival concludes.

Tickets are available at the SIFF Box Office and are $25 for the film & party or $13 for just the film.
