Oral History Interviews with the FOOLs 1997-99

For the 25th anniversary of the Seattle International Film Festival in 1999, Fool Serious member Doug Ing recorded several oral histories with other FOOLs on Hi-8 video. He recently took the tapes to Victory Studios to have them digitized, and we’ve now made them available on our YouTube.

The FOOLs are a dedicated group of a group of fanatical cinephiles that gather throughout the Festival. The name is a play on the “Full Series” Festival pass, which they all purchase year after year. We are deeply grateful to them for their longtime support and shared memories.

Watch the interviews below or on this YouTube playlist.
