Programmers' Picks: Megan Garbayo-López
SIFF Programmer Megan Garbayo-López shares some of their highlights from the 2023 Seattle International Film Festival.
This first-time feature is sure to be an indie classic for generations of teens to come. Who doesn't love a sapphic Asian American road trip romcom?
This film healed a piece of my preteen heart with its careful and important handling of a young girl on the brink of developing an eating disorder. It's sassy, funny, and bursting with self-love.
I was so fortunate to get to see this film in last year's New Works-In-Progress program and can't wait for its run during SIFF23!
This anime is gorgeous and the message is so important for youth and adults alike. Fun fact—the legendary Russian anime character designer Ilya Kuvshinov also designed the characters in Ghost in the Shell!
One of the films that made me fall in love with filmmaking (and Dustin Hoffman) as a youngster. Don't miss the chance to see this film on the big screen!
