Early Bird Pricing For SIFF 2018

January 1 - April 13

Seattle International Film Festival 2018 will be here before you know it. The programming is still being decided, but one thing is for sure: SIFF will still be the largest international film festival in North America. Members can get Early Bird pricing on passes and packages through April 13, so it's wise to buy now if you know you'll be attending screenings this year. (At the very least, it's good to make sure you get a SIFF membership, or renew it.) For Those Who Love A Party The Gala Pack is the way to go if you want to show up for the big parties. Early Bird pricing knocks off 20 bucks, so you can attend all three of the SIFF 2018 Gala film parties for $105. SIFF 2018 Opening Night Gala: May 17 SIFF 2018 Centerpiece Gala: TBA SIFF 2018 Closing Night Gala: June 10 For Those Who Love Surprises Get the Secret Festival Pass. SIFF includes four secret screenings, at 11am on each Sunday during the festival.

$28 – $48

As we look toward the heavens for the Super Blue Blood Moon happening next week, it seems apt to also "look down" and see our blue earth from the heavens. National Geographic Live presents View From Above, an evening with astronaut and photographer Terry Virts. For this three-night engagement, Virts talks about his time on the ISS and the perspective he gained on it. Virts had a unique, 360-degree view as he installed the cupola module on the ISS and later became the station's commander. He took an unprecedented number of photos from space, which became material for the National Geographic book View From Above and IMAX film A Beautiful Planet. Virts says no photo can capture the true beauty of being there, but seeing many of them projected on the big screen in the S. Mark Taper Auditorium at Benaroya Hall may be the next best thing. Doors open at 6pm on Monday, January 29. For other show times and to purchase tickets, see the Seattle Symphony website. Approximate run time: 120 minutes. Featured photo by Terry Virts.
