The Congress

August 29 - September 4, 2014

1:30 9:00

Ari Folman follows up the Oscar®-nominated Waltz With Bashir with a surreal, vivacious, live action-animation hybrid about an aging actress (Robin Wright playing a version of herself) who sells her image to a movie studio-turned-cinematic dream world.

In the follow-up to 2010's The Trip, director Michael Winterbottom follows buddies Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon on a driving tour through the Italian countryside, musing on life while indulging in scenic and gastronomic delights. Enjoy the film with some Lunetta Prosecco on sale at the concession stand, and sign up in the lobby for a chance to win a Pagliacci pizza party for up to 10 people!

Tales of extraordinary individuals changing their world.

Seattle filmmaker Ward Serrill (The Heart of the Game) follows Tom Kenyon, a scientist, shaman, and singer (with a four-octave vocal range) with a dazzlingly unique mission–to integrate modern science and ancient mysticism through sound.

The audience has spoken! Some of the favorites from SIFF 2014.

Sometimes scary, sometimes surreal, but always otherworldly.

Wild buffalos, greens and fish - these stories are the building blocks of our environment.

Unsettling, bizarre, occasionally just an adventure. Not for the whole family, some adult content.

From a World War II internment camp to "Star Trek" to online celebrity, George Takei's journey has been filled with the unexpected. This crowd-pleasing documentary peeks into the public and private lives of the actor turned equal rights activist and gay icon and his lovable husband, Brad.
