While much of the film world has their attention turned to the first full day of the Cannes Film Festival, there is a much bigger film festival kicking off today in the Pacific Northwest. That's bigger in sheer number of films at least.
Yes the Seattle International Film Festival 2015 unspools today with over 300 films and events in store for the good citizens of the Emerald City. You can view the full program and calendar of events on the SIFF homepage, but in the meantime, we've chosen 10 films to highlight from the selection. This is just a tiny fraction of the great movies on offer, but it's at least a good start.
