The Palo Alto International Film Festival announced its 2011 slate today. The lineup includes 20 features and 74 short films, featuring Kevin McDonald’s “Life in a Day” as the festival opener, described by the festival as “a documentary shot by filmmakers all over the world that serves as a time capsule to show future generations what it was like to be alive on July 24, 2010.”
“We’re seeing a new movement emerging ““ films are trying to live outside the cinema. They’re breaking out of traditional storytelling structures,” said PAIFF’s Director Programming Alf Seccombe in a statement.
The fest begins September 29 and will close with Herzog’s “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” on October 2.
Thursday, September 29
