SIFF: Seating not guaranteed at ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’

Demand was so high at SIFF last night for the shot-in-Seattle feature “Safety Not Guaranteed” that some ticket-holders were turned away at the door.

SIFF artistic director Carl Spence explained that SIFF movies are very rarely oversold, but it does happen “when there is an error in terms of how many passholders are let in versus how many tickets are sold.”

It just shows that there’s a lot of interest in this time-travel comedy by Colin Trevorrow. It follows three fictional Seattle Magazine editors on an odyssey filmed in and around Seattle. The film scored big at Sundance this year, and the next (and last) SIFF showing on May 25 is also sold out.

If you want to see it, though, don’t despair. It returns for a regular run here on June 8. If you want a whole list of SIFF films that are returning to Seattle later, go to Seattle Times movie critic Moira Macdonald’s blog.
