Opening Night Gala: Sword of Trust

Women in Film Seattle member: Lynn Shelton is showing her latest film, Sword of Trust as the opening film of the 45th SIFF! Two women (Jillian Bell and Michaela Watkins) attempt to unload an inherited Civil War sword onto a curmudgeonly pawnshop owner (Marc Maron) and reluctantly enter a world of conspiracy theory and Southern disillusionment.

Start the Festival right by attending the Opening Night Gala, the best party of the year, at Marion Oliver McCaw Hall. The kick-off event is always a fabulous time, with hors d'oeuvres, desserts, and cocktails immediately following the screening.
