Special Event and Benefit Screening of The Breach

 

The first week of October in Seattle is shaping up to be a robust one for anadromous fish films.

Just a few days after Shane Anderson's film Wild Reverence makes its Seattle premier at the SIFF Uptown, the SIFF Egyptian will be hosting a benefit screening of Mark Titus's film The Breach.

Film goers will be treated to wild salmon prepared by chef Tom Douglas, a Q&A with the filmmakers and special guests, and live music by Ray Troll. Even better is that proceeds from the event will benefit the SIFF and the fight to save Bristol Bay.
