Island’s debut film fest is set

‘Femme fatales of Film Noir.’ Sultry, saucy and possibly a sell-out

Femme fatales are hot.

Tickets to Whidbey Island’s first film festival featuring bold and brash broads are going fast.

About 60 percent of tickets for the four-movie “Femme Fatales of Film Noir” event Jan 12-13 have already sold, said Verna Everitt, Langley’s Whidbey Island Center for the Arts executive director.

“And we haven’t even advertised yet,” she said. “That’s incredible to have that kind of response in a first year of a film festival.”

Full series passes that offered premium reserved seats and other amenities were offered at an early bird discount and sold out quickly. Still available are packs for eight, six, or four regularly-priced festival screenings priced between $36 to $72. Individual tickets for $10 can also be ordered in advance.

The movies will be shown on WICA’s main stage with theater seating for 249 people. Two movies each day are scheduled.

The classic black-and-white films are “Gilda”, “Double Indemnity”, “The Killers” and “The Maltese Falcon.”
