Recommended by Joule Zelman

Seattle’s only festival devoted to Pacific Northwest movies will screen 14 features and 10 shorts programs, as well as offering media workshops, appearances by about 40 filmmakers, and one kickass artsy opening party. Don’t miss North of Blue, Portland animator Joanna Priestley’s psychedelic fantasia on the Yukon Territory; Vancouver: No Fixed Address, Charles Wilkinson’s documentary about our northern neighbor’s housing crisis and the global trend of offshore investment that precipitated it; or the 1963 classic It Happened at the World’s Fair, in which Elvis Presley jaunts through the World’s Fair in sunny Seattle. That last screening (at SIFF Cinema Egyptian) will feature live commentary from Stranger film editor and resident philosopher Charles Mudede, musician/writer Ahamefule J. Oluo, and former Stranger contributor and Shrill author Lindy West.
