Following the screening of “My Blind Brother” at 7 p.m. at the IKEA Performing Arts Center at Renton High School is the big opening-night gala at the Renton Pavilion Event Center nearby.

SIFF describes “My Blind Brother,” starring Adam Scott, Nick Kroll and Jenny Slate, as “an unconventional screwball romantic comedy about a lovable slacker who falls in love with the girlfriend of his blind, narcissistic brother.”

The SIFF website has a Film Guide on its website, www.siff.net, detailing all the films and where they are screening.
