The 3rd Annual Idaho International Film Festival will host special events throughout the weekend where festival attendees, actors, directors and sponsors will gather together to celebrate film, food, drink and music. Downtown Boise will be transformed into a Film Festival Village as audiences gather post-film at downtown eateries and lounges all weekend long.
