This week, the Seattle International Film Festival honors onetime Seattleite and legendary artist, musician, producer, conductor, arranger, and composer Quincy Delight Jones, Jr. with its Lifetime Achievement Award. Three incredible events will take place to celebrate the many ways – often more than we are aware – in which our lives have been touched by his monumental creativity and masterful craftsmanship.
Over the course of three evenings, SIFF will present three events in honor of Jones. On June 3, SIFF presents an archival presentation of Sidney Lumet’s searing 1964 drama The Pawnbroker, featuring a famous score by Jones. Then, on June 4, SIFF presents An Evening with Quincy Jones, with the Lifetime Achievement Award Tribute presentation, conversation with Jones, and screening of the SIFF 2014 Official Selection documentary Keep On Keepin’ On, a candidly emotional look at jazz trumpeter Clark Terry (one of Jones’ mentors) and Terry’s latest protegé, Justin Kauflin. Finally, on June 5, we invite our guests to experience a thrilling evening of music at the Triple Door, featuring the Justin Kauflin Trio. Quincy Jones will be in attendance at all three events. Keep on Keepin’ On director Alan Hicks, producer Paula DuPré Pesman, and subject Justin Kauflin will be in attendance on June 4 & 5.
