Café Society to open the Seattle International Film Festival on May 19

CS1

The film will have its world premiere at Cannes, but its North American debut will be in Seattle.

Woody Allen’s latest film, Cafe Society, will be featured during the Opening Night Gala of the 2016 Seattle International Film Festival.

Cafe Society stars Jesse Eisenberg as a young man who arrives in Hollywood from New York during the 1930s and finds himself swept up in the cafe society of the age. Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell, Parker Posey and Blake Lively also star.

“Woody Allen delivers a delightful, vibrant and entertaining tale that continues to expand his repertory of acting talent. Combining the power of SIFF, which boasts the largest audience of any film festival in the country, with an emerging Seattle-based film distribution powerhouse that firmly believes in the theatrical experience, along with one of our most acclaimed directors, is a perfect match,” said festival director Carl Spence.

Cafe Society will have its premiere at the Cannes International Film Festival in May.

The film is being distributed by Amazon. The Seattle-based company has six titles at the festival, including Author: The JT LeRoy Story, The Dressmaker and Gleason.

The 42nd Seattle International Film Festival will run from May 19 to June 12.

Café Society will screen on Thursday 19 May at 7.00pm (PT)
