SCC Film Faculty blaze trail at SIFF

The Seattle Film Festival has made a name for itself in the world of film festivals, now ranked as the largest and most well attended in the U.S. It has also become one of the more competitive venues for filmmakers, and this year’s SIFF includes the work of all of the SCC film/video instructors – Tony Doupé, Kristofor Boustedt and Ruth Gregory. What a testament to the creativity and quality of their work.

Tony Doupé’s work has been included in the SIFF lineup for more than 10 years. This year, he returns to the screen in the short film, “Your Lucky Day.” The 17-minute short is one of five films in the Northwest Connections program at the Egyptian Theatre, showing at 4:30 p.m., May 22, 2010. Doupé is also starring in “My Life with Betty,” showing at the Harvard Exit May 21 and May 23 at the Harvard Exit.  Photo, left.

Kristofor Boustedt (and his wife, Lindy) wrote, directed and produced the feature film, “Perfect 10,” a low-budget drama/comedy about a married woman who goes to her 10-year high school reunion sans her husband for a second chance with the boy she loved in high school. The film takes place (and was filmed in just two weeks) in Seattle and in Eastern Washington (where the Boustedts met while going to Eastern Washington University.) “Perfect 10” is scheduled to play on June 7 at 9:15 p.m. and again on June 8 at 4 p.m. at the SIFF Cinema at SIFF Cinema on lower Queen Anne.  Photo, right.

This is the second year Ruth Gregory (left, with Chris and Tony) has had her work included in the SIFF line-up. This year’s film, "I Saw U," is a short documentary about the people who meet via the “I Saw U” ads in the Seattle newspaper, “The Stranger.” Gregory, who co-produced the film, said it was made in five days as part of the International Documentary Challenge, a timed filmmaking competition. The film, which won “Best of First Person Genre" and "Best Soundtrack (The President of the United States)" at the Hot Docs International Documentary Festival in Toronto, features Editor and Chief of “The Stranger,” Dan Savage.

Shoreline Community College film student, Chris Geilos and graduate, Brien Houston worked with the Shoreline film instructors as crew members.
