Hopkins Honored by Seattle Film Festival

Although the official schedule won’t be announced until Thursday,May 10th, the 33rd Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) has already announced one science fiction film being presented.

Slipstream, written and directed by Anthony Hopkins, will first be shown on Tuesday, May 29, at the SIFF Cinema at McCaw Hall at 7 p.m. According to the press release, "This film is an inventive, multilayered journey into the mind of an aging screenwriter whose fictional universe begins to invade his real life. Hopkins’ bold film plays with the nature of cinema and pokes a little fun at the movie business in the process. The film also stars Christian Slater, Jeffrey Tambor, Lisa Pepper and John Turturro."

Slipstream will have an encore screening on May 30 at the Egyptian Theatre at 4pm as part of a special tribute event where Hopkins will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
