We are saddened by the passing of Seattle International Film Festival co-founder Darryl Macdonald. HIs vision, leadership, creativity, and passion for film was the foundation of SIFF, and his loss will be felt across the industry.
Arriving in Seattle in 1976, Darryl and co-founder Dan Ireland set about creating a film festival centered around movie enthusiasts that broke away from the traditional models and was destined to become the largest film festival in the United States. For the next 30 years, Darryl was at the center of the U.S. discovery of Dutch Cinema, the growth of arthouse cinema in Seattle, and championing the profound effect film can have on audiences.
Under Darryl’s leadership, the Festival grew into the beloved institution that is now a cornerstone of the Seattle arts and cultural community. He leaves a legacy of a city with a great passion for film and discovery. Our deepest condolences go out to his family and friends.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
