THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

25 NEW FACES OF INDEPENDENT FILM

VISITING ARTISTFilmmaker Magazine's annual "25 New Faces of Independent Film" shines a spotlight on emerging filmmakers to keep an eye on. This year's list includes three Northwest filmmakers whose work is finding national, as well as regional, attention. The program includes Seattle filmmakers Ewan McNicol and Anna Sandiland's THE ROPER, in which Kendrick, a young calf roper in Louisiana, dreams of one day making it to the Las Vegas rodeo finals (6 mins.); Seattle filmmaker Scott Blake's SURVEYOR, in which a government agent surveyor in the last days of the Mexican-American War attempts to return home after mapping land on the western frontier, in a journey that becomes a nightmarish trek through a gothic American landscape (25 mins.); and Corvallis filmmaker Nandan Rao's HAWAIIAN PUNCH, an unconventional buddy movie in which two young Mormon men on a mission term in Hawaii spend their days cliff diving, moped riding, and conversing about relationships and religion. (60 mins.) (Total program running time: 91 mins.)

Director Nandan Rao will be in attendance for a post-film Q&A. Filmmaker Magazine's 25 New Faces of Independent Film is proudly sponsored by Sony Creative Software and ARRI CSC.

FINDING TRUELOVE
DIRECTOR: SAM KUHN
BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, WA, 2012

Clay, Michael, and Andrew are fascinated by a yearbook from Chico High's Class of 1990, which they discover at a Value Village. Intrigued by the cryptic word "Caduceus" emblazoned across the cover and by the countless sweet mullets and dream girls inside, the three friends lock onto one particular student: feather-banged mystery man Timothy Truelove. When the guys discover the upcoming Class of 1990's 20th reunion, they can't resist the temptation to crash. "This is hands down the most awesome road trip you'll ever take from Portland to Chico, California! Will they get busted by the Reunion Committee? Will Truelove show? The documentary equivalent of a John Hughes movie, FINDING TRUELOVE is an exuberant comedy that pays homage to all things '80s with pure energy and heart."—Hot Docs. (69 mins.)

OCCUPY LOVE
DIRECTOR: VELCROW RIPPER
VANCOUVER, BC, 2013

Join Vancouver, BC, filmmaker Velcrow Ripper (SCARED SACRED, FIERCE LIGHT) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet as he asks the question, "How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?" Ripper connects the dots in our era of rapidly evolving social change, juxtaposing captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian revolution, Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, indigenous activists at the Alberta Tar Sands, climate justice movement, and beyond. Featuring some of the world's key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, bell hooks, and Charles Eisenstein. "What the film shows, triumphantly, is that love can unite as much as greed can divide."—Vancouver Film Festival. (95 mins.)
