Seattle’s Bumbershoot is host to SIFF’s 1 Reel Film Festival, a showcase of short films from around the world. This year several winners of the Northwest High School Film Festival join the program – including two by Ballard High School Video Production students. The Crumb, by Emily Deering, Karli Lafferty, Sarah Maloney & Taylor Rubright, is a humorous look at the extremes of obsessive compulsion. The short drama Reflection, by Sheridan Koehler & Blair Scott, examines the cost of bad choices. Both were student Emmy nominees at the Northwest Regional Emmy Awards last spring and Official Selections at the National Film Festival for Talented Youth in addition to winning Awards of Excellence at the NWHSFF.

The showcase will be screened at SIFF Cinema from noon to 1 pm on Sunday, September 5. The public is welcome to attend. Bumbershoot 2010 tickets are on sale online and will also be available at the gates at Seattle Center on Bumbershoot weekend. One entrance ticket gets you a full days worth of entertainment – there is no separate ticketing for the 1 Reel Film Festival. For more ticketing information, visit
