SIFF announces guests: Sissy Spacek, William Friedkin

The Seattle International Film Festival today announced two special guests for the upcoming festival, both of whom will be honored in a tribute evening. Sissy Spacek, a six-time Academy Award nominee (and a winner for “Coal Miner’s Daughter”) will be present June 7 at the Uptown, where she will be presented with SIFF’s Oustanding Achievement in Acting award. The evening will include an onstage interview (with questions from the audience), a clips package, and a screening of Terrence Malick’s haunting debut feature “Badlands,” in which a young Spacek played a teenage killer. I’ve just read Spacek’s new autobiography, “My Extraordinary Ordinary Life” and she seems like a delightful storyteller; should be a great evening.
Friedkin, who won a 1972 Oscar for directing “The French Connection” (he was also nominated as director of “The Exorcist” two years later), will be given SIFF’s Lifetime Achievement award June 9 at the Egyptian, in an evening that will include the west coast premiere of his latest movie, the black comedy “Killer Joe,” as well as an interview and Q & A.
Tickets for both events are currently available on SIFF’s website. Full programming will be announced Friday.
