The 20th annual Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival launches this Thursday, October 8 and runs to October 18. There are so many new filmmakers and a host of veterans with work that you will want to know and love! And, of course, Scarecrow Video holds the treasure of many of our directors and actors previous works.
Come see the latest work from Dreya Weber, Ellen Page and more, then go rent their past movies at Scarecrow. Or, get up to speed with the other classics by filmmakers like Bruce LaBruce, whose seminal 1996 work HUSTLER WHITE is playing at the festival.

Tuesday will be the first night of SHRIEK: A Women of Horror Film and Discussion Class at Scarecrow Video. We’ll watch Carrie (discussed below in this post), I’ll tell you some things to look for and some things you probably don’t know about the film, and then we’ll have a community discussion.
Seats are expected to go quickly at SHRIEK, but you can reserve your space in the class here.
Stay tuned for next week’s session on Rosemary’s Baby!
The SHRIEK community film class is designed to offer everybody an affordable, accessible way to learn about film and women’s studies while enjoying kick-ass heroines in some of the best horror films ever made. We hope to inspire more women to get involved in film making, especially in the horror genre, where women are severely underrepresented behind the camera.

We sent intrepid part-time entertainment journalist and Scarecrow employee/loyalist Kevin Clarke to Austin’s Fantastic Fest to report on the goings on. Well, technically he sent himself. Either way, these movies look awesome.
