One of our Dante members, Andrea Aldrich, recently interviewed the Artistic Director of SIFF, Beth Barrett, during a recent episode of her podcast, Italy Inside Out.

Beth gives us insider information about the Seattle International Film Festival and the reason Cinema Italian Style was born.

This year, because of the pandemic, Cinema Italian Style will be virtual, which has brought a whole new set of production challenges for SIFF. During the festival, new films are shown by established film makers and the works of new film makers are debuted. This engaging interview with Beth Barrett, Artistic Director for SIFF, discloses the history of the organization and the changes made throughout its 47 year existence, the emergence of the Italian film festival because of the strong community interest, the search for new films each year and a synopsis of some of her favorites in this year’s lineup.
