How To Get Your Movie Into SIFF

I was browsing the Seattle International Film Festival catalog, trying to map my schedule through all the films I want to see, when I began to notice a curious trend. My movie “Tex: Vampire Hunter” was not selected for SIFF this year (got in to STIFF), but I have now discovered the secret to getting in. Here it is:

If you want to get into SIFF, include in your movie a scene with people in bed, and make it your signature screenshot.

That’s all, really. Need proof? Ok! Here we go.


Skateland



The Big Dream



Come Undone



Music on Hold



Upperdog


For extra points throw in a little gay.


Leo’s Room



From Beginning to End



Room in Rome


For extra, extra points, show three people in bed.


A Rational Solution



Run If You Can


It even works with lonely men and their blow-up dolls


Southern District



Air Doll


So there you have it. Over a dozen movies with people in bed in the SIFF 2010 program. As you can see this is an absolutely foolproof way to get your film in. If only I had known, I would have included one in my movie. Oh, wait a minute…

Oh, come on!
