20 Years of Zeitgeist Films at SIFF Cinema : Nov 14 - 26

Seattle International Film Festival celebrates Zeitgeist Film's excellence over the course of their 20 years
with this selection of notable releases. Series includes such directors (and some of my personal favorites
among their work) as Guy Maddin, Jia Zhang-Ke, Nuri Bilge-Ceylon, Francois Ozon, Brothers Quay and
Derek Jarman. Check the SIFF site for schedule and screenings:

From the SIFF site:

"We celebrate 20 years of extraordinary vision with our tribute to independent distributor Zeitgeist Films.
Founded in 1988, Zeitgeist has consistently sought out and championed films that are both innovative
and challenging—expressions of the best in world cinema. They have embraced such artists as Todd
Haynes, Francois Ozon, Olivier Assayas, and Guy Maddin in the early stages of their careers, introducing
them to American screens; and have revived the works of master filmmakers like Jacques Demy and
Derek Jarman. Happy Anniversary, Zeitgeist!"
