It’s coming in just two weeks. Before you fill your calendar with trifling stuff, block out September 27-30 for the 2012 Palo Alto Int’l Film Festival.
As if it’s not enough that 75 feature-length and short films will be shown at Landmark’s Aquarius Theater and Cinemark’s Palo Alto Square, the Outdoor Festival Village promises four evenings of fun. Event planners have scheduled food trucks, wine bars, free music, free movies, and a VIP lounge for Patron and Festival Plus passholders.
The PAIFF/TechCU Outdoor Festival Village will be located on High Street between University and Hamilton. The street will be blocked off each night at 5 p.m. and the large parking lot will be transformed into the Festival Village
