Each year, SIFF tests the skills of Seattle’s up and coming cinematic talent in an intense race to the big screen with the Fly Filmmaking Challenge.  This year, SIFF and presenting partner KCTS 9’s Reel NW offered a dozen pitches focused on the Seattle Center’s “Next 50” celebration for the 50th Anniversary of the Seattle World’s Fair, for which Seattle Center was created. Directors picked from a selection of “Next 50” themed scripts, and then had seven days to collaborate with the writers on the final production of the film. The filmmakers shot for three days on the Seattle Center campus, leaving only five days to edit. Catch the last screening of The Fly Filmmaking Challange at 9 pm tonight, June 6, at the Harvard Exit on Capitol Hill.
