The 44th annual Seattle International Film Festival is the largest film festival in the United States, with more than 400 films (spread over 25 days) watched by around 150,000 people. It's impressively grand and one of the most exciting and widely attended arts events Seattle has to offer. Highlights this year include the opening film, Isabel Coixet's The Bookshop starring Emily Mortimer; Sorry to Bother You, musician Boots Riley's debut about a black telemarketer (Lakeith Stanfield) who discovers he has a magical power; and Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot, a Gus Van Sant comedy-drama starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Portland cartoonist John Callahan.
