The Seattle Shorts Film Festival previously screened two Oscar qualifying shorts, Do I Have to Take Care of Everything? (2013) and Curfew (2012), which won the Academy Award for best live action picture. We are thrilled to present another exciting lineup of local, national and international films this year, including: The Lord of Catan, featuring Amy Acker and Fran Kranz (stars in Joss Whedon’s 2013 Much Ado About Nothing); The Wood House, featuring Alicia Goranson of Roseanne and Boys Don’t Cry. The jury includes Venus DeMilo Thomas from Nickelodeon’s Salute Your Shorts, and Christina Rose star of How Do You Write A Joe Schermann Song, and Savanah Wiltfong star of Dear Lemon Lima and Coldwood.
A husband and wife are plunged into an epic struggle for dominance when their friendly game night escalates into cut-throat competition. Old grudges and hidden wounds rise to the surface, propelling them towards their final reckoning, for there can be only one… Lord of Catan.
