What to do After VT 3.0? Check out the Film Fest! 

Published October 24, 2008 at 12:46 p.m.

Looking for something to do after schmoozing all day at Vermont 3.0? Check out the Vermont International Film Festival, going on all weekend at the Palace 9 in South Burlington, and at the Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center on the Burlington Waterfront (where we had the Tech Jam in January).

VIFF started as a human rights film fest — it grew out of the anti-nuke movement in the 1980s — but it's broadened its scope in recent years. They still show great social justice documentaries, but they also feature less serious and more local fare. On Saturday night, for example, you can watch a doc about Vermont's most outrageous drag queens, the Sisters LeMay.

Saturday's VIFF schedule starts at 12:30 p.m. Individual shows at the Palace are $8.50 each, but the films at the waterfront are free.
