A short film created by Western Washington University Department of Design faculty member Kacey Morrow has been selected to play in the Seattle International Film Festival.

It will be screening Sunday, May 19, and Wednesday, May 22, at SIFF Cinema Uptown in front of the feature film, "A Shape of Error."

Morrow's short film "Synchrony" was shot using a Summer Research Grant from Western. The film follows two tourists traveling alone and worlds apart, unknowingly holding an inescapable connection. This year, "Synchrony" has screened at DC Independent Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Crossroads Film Festival, was accepted by Seattle True Independent Film Festival and is about to screen in Seattle International Film Festival.
