Posted By on Tue, Feb 10, 2015 at 12:04 PM


The Spokane International Film Festival is off and running, and screenings continue through this weekend. Be sure to check out our complete coverage of SpIFF while you decide what films to see. 

Inlander intern Courtney Brewer took her camera to the Opening Gala at the Bing Crosby Theater, which included screenings of regional productions Dryland and Queens of the Roleo, as well as appearances by both films' directors and casts. Author Jess Walter moderated the Q&A sessions, and film fans mingled at the Bing's Ovation Lounge and checked out the SpIFF Posterize artwork. 

Here are some shots from the scene:
