Over the weekend CB and I went to the Seattle International Film Festival and I'm so disappointed that we didn't participate earlier. We chose to see two screenings of short films, which both CB and I agreed were quite impressive. I really love short films, I could watch them all day. If you don't like a film, it's totally cool because it will end shortly and you can look forward to seeing the next one. I can't bear the idea of sitting through a 2+ hour movie that I hate.
My favorite short film was North Atlantic. It was gripping and real. I found myself completely captivated with it and at the end I was smiling and crying at the same time. If you ever have a chance to see it, do so.
I also gave 5 stars to Danny and Annie, Sign Language, and (a close 5) Cataplexy. I really love the idea of rating a film right after viewing it.
The festival ends in a little less than two weeks and I am already making plans to see other screenings. I think you should too!
