Interactive experiences at SIFF's annual series of holiday favorites.
SEATTLE — October 8, 2019 — Our mission to bring people together to enjoy the unique communal experience of extraordinary films is underscored by our holiday programming. All films in our holiday season have an interactive element: singing along with Kermit as he reflects on the Rainbow Connection; quoting Inigo Montoya as he tells Count Rugen, "Prepare to die!;" laugh and comment along with the MST3K's Mike and the bots about Santa Claus; enjoy klezmer music and Chinese food at Fiddler on the Roof; and prepare to ring in the new year with complimentary bling rings and champagne for Baz Luhrmann's frenetic technicolor opus, Moulin Rouge!
Holidays at SIFF are for kids of all ages and film fans that know that there's no place like the big screen at SIFF to watch a holiday favorite.
