PAIFF is a four-day festival celebrating the new forms of storytelling in film and media that have developed as a result of technological innovation.
The inaugural Palo Alto International Film Festival is the only film festival to celebrate not only the work of artists, but also the work of technology masters that make stories come to life. We will present artistic films that are driven by an innovative collaboration between art and technology. We will be showing pioneering films that make use of cutting-edge technology in order to further art, as well as films driven by themes of technology. We want to bring the finest artists and technology masters to Silicon Valley, to an audience that is uniquely receptive to the changes in storytelling brought about by the digital age. We want to bring the masters themselves together in order to fuel new ideas.
