Port Townsend: Film festival up and running

Pass the popcorn and give two thumbs up for the second annual Port Townsend Film Festival this weekend — three days of screening 22 films from around the world at four venues.

And screen star Eva Marie Saint is the featival’s featured guest.

Saint won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Edie in the 1954 classic, “On the Waterfront” with Marlon Brando. She also won critical acclaim for her role in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 hit, “North by Northwest” with co-star Cary Grant.

Film-screening locations are the Rose Theatre, Rosebud Cinema, the “The Broughton Theatre,” (Uptown Community Center, transformed into a 400-seat wide-screen venue) and a block party on Taylor Street, closed to traffic and opened for free outdoor movies.

Festival director Linda Yakush said she anticipates few changes, if any, in the scheduling of films and events.
