As I was completing the application for the Seattle International Film Festival, I noticed that one of their rules is that they want your Seattle Premiere at SIFF (if they select you). Since I had already scheduled our Seattle Premiere for Rat Rod Rockers! at the iconic King Cat Theater for March 26th, and really don't want to cancel that just to possibly be included in SIFF, I tore up the application. Then I remember STIFF's (Seattle True Independent Film Festival) deadline was also approaching, so I just relabeled the envelope and sent it off to them. STIFF is a much cooler event and not as hi-brow artsy fartsy as SIFF- which has become a monolithic institution around here.
