LGBTQ SIFF 2019: The Final Week

Siff2019RED Box

It’s the FINAL COUNTDOWN for LGBTQ Films at the 45th annual Seattle International Film Festival as the festival winds its way to closing night on Sunday, June 9th. (Of course, SIFF continues year round with screenings at its own venues at The Uptown and Egyptian Cinemas and at its own screening room at its Seattle Center main office.)

Closing out the queer films this week are dramas from Brazil and comedies from Italy and Austrian psycho dramas and satires from Sweden. Not to mention a locally made documentary about some stripping faux cowboys and a big fancy documentary about legendary fashion desire/Liza’s Best Friend, Halston.

Check out more on these films down below and on the last few LGBTQ screenings at the SIFF website, HERE.
