Secret Festival #3 - Rounding up the Usual Suspects
Steve's Livejournal
Secret Festival #3
SIFF's capsule summary (from last year, because they don't have one for this year): "The Secret Festival is exactly what it says-all screenings are secret. What we can tell you is that you need to purchase a special Secret Festival pass to attend the screenings that occur on the four Sundays of the festival at 11 a.m. sharp."
SIFF link (also last year's): Secret Festival

Because of the rules of the Secret Festival, I can't tell what we saw. 7 Good

I was really excited to see how SIFF's (acting) Artistic Director Beth Barrett would do with her next Secret Festival choice. It was yet another winner; she is now three for three.

Review: I very much enjoyed this film, and I got the impression that most of the audience did too. However, because of the rules of the Secret Festival, I can't say what it was. Yes, I know it's a wicked taunt to tell about it with no details other than saying I was there and can't discuss it. But that's how it works.

Language: I'm not telling.

Rating: I'm not telling.

Screening: Sunday 11 am, SIFF Cinema Egyptian.
Audience: 90% full, somewhere between 476 and 590 seats, depending on what sources I check.

Goodies: toast before we left home.

Ads and promotions:

  • SIFF campfire self-promotion clip. Nice.
  • May God Save Us – Madrid police search for a serial killer around the time of a visit by a pope. (Benedict, not Francis.)
  • Young Karl Marx is a biographical documentary about the philosopher. It looks like the costumes will be the highlight of the film.
  • Thank you, Volunteers – the clip with Fellowship of the Ring members pledging.
  • Beth Barrett introduced the film, with some information about it.

Notes to myself:

SIFF statistics: 55 films (54 features, one short), 54 slots (including one panel), five parties. ("J": 33 features and seven shorts, four parties.)
