SIFF Honors Ethan Hawke With Tribute/Screening of Film “Blaze”


A few tickets remain for the Seattle International Film Festival’s starry tribute to actor/writer/director ETHAN HAWKE happening this Friday, June 8th at the Egyptian Theater on Capitol Hill. Several of Hawke’s films have been screened and the Friday event features Hawke in person at the screening of his latest directorial effort BLAZE with a Q & A to follow. 

There’s even a super dooper/fancy shcmancy VIP option with the added addition of a reception with the “modern-day renaissance artist”….

More poo:

A modern-day renaissance artist, Ethan Hawke’s creative talent continues to flourish in several realms of expression. An actor, screenwriter, novelist, and filmmaker, his body of work is broad as it is deep in a career that now spans three decades. From portraying a rock-steady police sergeant and cowboy, to a sensitive teenage poet and young heartthrob, his versatility as an actor is renowned, cementing him as one of the great performers of this generation.

SIFF is proud to present Hawke with the Seattle International Film Festival Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cinema. A Q&A with Hawke will follow the screening of his new film, Blaze.
