OPENING NIGHT GALA: SID & JUDY
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2019 | 6:30 PM | SIFF CINEMA EGYPTIAN
Judy Garland began performing in vaudeville when she was only two and went on to have an illustrious career on the stage and in radio, film, and television. Now, director Stephen Kijak (WE ARE X, NEVER MET PICASSO) has uncovered never-before-seen recordings, photographs, and insights from the archives of her third husband, producer Sid Luft (A STAR IS BORN and The Judy Garland Show).
First-person accounts of Judy’s career and Sid and Judy’s tumultuous marriage are narrated by Emmy winner Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Academy Award nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh (THE HATEFUL EIGHT, Atypical). Judy’s status as an icon for the whole LGBTQ2+ community—her death may even have partly inspired the Stonewall riots—is highlighted through her queer following, including transgender activist and Stonewall veteran Miss Major.
OPENING NIGHT GALA
Kick off the 24th Seattle Queer Film Festival off right by attending the queer event of the season at the Rainier Chapter House! The party is a fab time featuring small bites, signature cocktails, and a dance party lead by DJ Paco immediately following the screening.
Director Stephen Kijak is scheduled to attend.
OPENING NIGHT TICKETS BOGO UNTIL 9/30

We have volunteer shifts that fit almost any schedule and any physical ability. We need volunteers to help usher, assist with setup and breakdown, staff the will call and membership tables, greet guests at the hospitality center and festival receptions, and more.
