Come Hob Knob at the 2010 Martha’s Vineyard International Film Festival!!! Now through September 12, 2010...

Combining the laidback beach style of the island of Martha’s Vineyard with the buzz and excitement of festival celebrating films from across the globe - The Martha’s Vineyard International Film Festival is an amazing experience not to be missed. Four days filled with the best feature and short films from top-notch festivals such as Sundance, Berlin and Cannes (with a few undiscovered gems thrown in!), great evening events, provocative forums and live world music.  The recurring theme of the Festival is "Other Places"; the festival's purpose is to encourage attendees to think broadly (about how huge the world of film is) and deeply (about the universal concerns and desires that unite all people). About 90% of all film selections are non-US productions, helping to fulfill the festival mission of promoting cross-cultural understanding through film.
