Whackala in Seattle

Well, we’re back from a fantastic trip to SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival) the biggest festival in North America. With Support from Culture Ireland we were able to attend the screening of Forty Foot, as part of  the “Straight from NPR” shorts’ selection.

All the staff and programmers at SIFF treated us fantastically, we had a great time getting to know them and our fellow short film makers who screened over the shorts weekend.

Leticia Agudo spills the beans

The screening went great, we had a fantastic time at SIFF, made new friends and even caught up with some of last years finalists from the Doc Challenge. We wouldn’t have been able to attend SIFF without the generous support of Culture Ireland.
