TheTwoOhSix Picks - 2024 Seattle International Film Festival

50 years of movies thanks to the Seattle International Film Festival! What an amazing achievement for one of the world's most unique film festivals and I am proud to say that this is my 12th year covering the event as a member of the press. I have watched and reviewed so many movies during and for the festival, at some point I'll have to take a look back to see what my all time favorites are. In the meantime, here are the 12 (in honor of my years of coverage) feature films that I feel are the ones you absolutely do not want to miss.
