  • Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA (1888PressRelease) April 10, 2012 - The rainy city is upping its game once again. Short films from all across the United States and the World including the UK and Australia have been selected to highlight and redefine just how good student film can really be. And the bar has now been set very high.

    Daniel Hoyos, The Student Film Block's Director has worked tirelessly to secure the cream of the crop. 16mm film, high production value, and a large quantity of female helmed films, these are the rarities that set this fest apart from so many others. The genres are far reaching and well represented, from MOTHER, a hard-edged family drama directed by Laurel Parmet, taunt thriller TANTAMOUNT TO TREASON directed by British Filmmaker Andrew Hall to castaway love story ALONE TOGETHER crafted by local filmmaker Ben Kadie, and dramedy GONE FOR THE DAY by MJ Slide of South Carolina.

    A cash prize of $500 will be awarded to the "Best of the Block" in order to support the filmmaker in funding his/or her next project. The finalists for the award include A STRANGE DAY IN JULY by Shantal Reich, MOTHER, and GOOD TASTE by Greg Hanson.

    The screening will take place in the Seattle University District at the historic Varsity Theater May 10th from 7-11pm. Seating is limited and going fast. Reserve your tickets at STIFF's Everbrite page: (

    Come support talent from all corners of the World and the best of Student Film.
