Starbucks is honored to partner with the 45th annual Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF), the largest and most highly attended film festival in the United States with over 400 films from 90 countries. We love the work SIFF is doing to bring people together through art and storytelling, starting in our hometown and radiating out through the world.
We’re excited to bring these films to you, viewable here for free. So, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy.
The 25-day-long festival is happening May 16 through June 9 in theaters all around Seattle. To share the experience, SIFF has made seven original short films available exclusively for Starbucks customers.
