The Scarecrow Video Podcast Episode 28: SIFF 2012

In the latest episode of the Scarecrow Video Podcast, your host Matt is joined by esteemed local film critic Andrew Wright and Amie Simon, who contributes to the sparkly indie-pop press of Three Imaginary Girls. They gathered at Aster Coffee in Ballard to pour through the catalog of films playing at the upcoming Seattle International Film Festival.

Amie's looking forward to the horror anthology V/H/S (featuring a segment by The Inkeepers director Ti West), Julie Delpy's 2 Days in New York, and Megan Griffiths' Eden.

Andrew is curious about the Thai thriller Headshot, real-life mystery The Imposter, and the Korean "horror movie without a monster" Choked.

Matt recommends to two new documentaries: Adam Curtis' All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace and The Story of Film: An Odyssey--a 15-hour journey through cinema. It will be shown in five three-hour parts during the festival.


The 2012 Seattle International Film Festival opens May 17 with Lynn Shelton's Your Sister's Sister and runs through June 10 with films all over town as well as in Kirkland, Everett, and Renton.
