This year's opening night film will be Borg vs. McEnroe. It will be screened at the SIFF Cinema Uptown, and a reception hosted by SWEA will take place at SIFF Film Center following the film.

It's the summer of 1980 and Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) is the top tennis player in the world, dominating the sport both on and off the court. There is only one obstacle in his pursuit of a record-breaking fifth Wimbledon championship: the highly talented but ferociously abrasive young American, John McEnroe (Shia LaBeouf). Visceral and breathlessly tense, the match itself (regarded as one of the greatest of all time) would mark the pinnacle of the "Fire and Ice" rivalry between Borg and McEnroe—an exhilarating battle of personalities that set the world of tennis alight.

Check back soon for our sponsors!

Our new facility will open May 5, 2018!
