SIFF 2017: paradise for movie lovers

One of the best times of year for Northwest moviegoers comes sometime in the middle of May through the first several days of June. This is when the Seattle International Film Festival is held.

This year's SIFF, the 43rd edition, begins on May 18 and runs through June 11. It annually screen more than 400 films from 80-odd countries and attracts some 155,000 attendees.

You can — and should — be among their number. Tickets to SIFF 2017 are now on sale.

I've been attending SIFF on and offer since the early '90s. No festival in the. country offers a better viewing experience.
