This Friday, June 17, the 2nd Annual Twist of Pride Film Festival will screen two films at the SIFF Cinema Egyptian. Co-presented by Three Dollar Bill Cinema, Friday’s festivities will begin with a 7:30pm screening of the 1996 film Crocodile Tears, followed by the world premiere of Brides to Be at 10pm. There will be a cocktail intermission between the films with a Q&A and joint panel discussion, and a second Q&A following Brides to Be.
Written and Directed by Ted Sod, the locally made Crocodile Tears tells the story of a stand-up comic who makes a deal with the devil after he discovers he’s HIV positive. In order to reverse his status, the comic will have to perform three deeds of the Devil’s choosing… As an added bonus, Seattle’s own Dan Savage makes an appearance.
In Brides to Be, we meet two lovely ladies on the eve of their wedding. Robin can’t wait for the big day, while Jenna frets over sinister forces that threaten to tear the couple apart. Shot in an actual haunted mansion in Marymoor Park, Redmond, the supernatural thriller is written and directed by Kris and Lindy Boustedt. The directors, along with stars Carollani Sandberg, Angela DiMarco, Jesse Lee Keeter and Linas Phillips are all scheduled to attend.
