Discover hidden delights at Everett Film Festival
EVERETT - At the Everett Film Festival, people will get to discover quirky films they would never get to see in mainstream theaters.
Festival director Teresa Henderson likes it that way.
“We like to find those little-found works,” Henderson said. “There are little gems out there that people haven’t seen (that are a) little quirky and off the beaten path.”
The festival showings include documentaries, comedies and shorts.
The festival runs the night of Friday, Feb. 8 and almost all day Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Everett Performing Arts Center, 2710 Wetmore Ave.
The film lineup includes “Somewhere Between,” “Through the Eye of the Needle” and “Diggers.”
In “Somewhere Between,” adopted Chinese adults ponder why they were adopted. In the film, “Bag It,” a man tries to eliminate using plastic bags from his everyday life and finds it hard to do.
Lynn Shelton, a Seattle-based director, may be present for the showing of her film “Your Sister’s Sister.” The film, a comedy starring Emily Blunt and Rosemarie DeWitt that was selected for the Sundance Film Festival, will show on Saturday.
The festival’s selections still keeps to its roots. From 1997 up to a few years ago, it was called the Everett Women’s Film Festival.
“We still focus on issues that affect everyone’s lives, but especially from a woman’s perspective,” Henderson said.
Henderson got involved in the all-volunteer festival through a close friend, she said. At the time, she didn’t know there even was a film festival in Everett.
The selections this year are “a really good mix,” Henderson said. Many of the films are “thoroughly enjoyable,” she said.
Festival attendees will be given critique sheets to rate the films.
The festival includes a catered gala Friday night starting at 6:30 p.m. Saturday’s films start at 10 a.m.
Tickets to attend both days and the Friday night gala are $40; tickets for only Friday night are $20 and tickets for only Saturday afternoon are $25.
To see the complete list of films and to buy tickets, visit the festival website at www.everettfilmfest.org. People also can call the theater’s box office at 425-257-8600 to buy tickets.
