Well, I'm back from my last screening of the 2008 Seattle International Film Festival. Quite sad :-(
So I guess withdrawal starts now...
I still have a fair number of films to write up over the coming days along with overall impressions of the festival. After updating my master list the final count comes to 98 films. A bit less than last year, but I think the number of strong films was actually a bit higher overall. Those films were spread out across 36 distinctive countries. Early this year I published the distribution of countries represented at this year's SIFF. With this post I've included my personal distribution of films viewed. You can click in the graphics for a closer look.
This week I plan to publish my top choices coming out of the festival - not in any particular order but just my personal faves. So check back or subscribe for email updates. :-)
