Film Festival Fun

Are you curious about the history of the cubicle or the lost surfing culture in New York City? Now you are. And the Palm Beach International Film Festival has you covered. The festival’s opening night is Wednesday: There’s a party, seminars, and a screening of Win Win, an acclaimed film about a bedraggled New Jersey lawyer who coaches a wrestling team and “stumbles across a star athlete through some questionable business dealings.” Other fascinating flicks: Acts of Godfrey is set at a motivational sales conference and involves con men and an undertaker; Turkles follows some Palm Beach kids hunting down a turtle-egg thief; Our Hawaii interviews surfers who once took to NYC’s cold waves; and Three Walls examines the rise of the cubicle. The Palm Beach International Film Festival runs from Wednesday through Monday. There are events and movies galore, and ticket prices and locations vary. Just $300 gets you access to everything. Call 561-362-0003, or visit pbifilmfest.org.
