In addition, there will be filmmaker Q&A sessions, panel discussions, visiting filmmakers, parties and events.
One of the most anticipated films featured in the festival is Sleepwalk With Me, written, directed and starring Mike Birbiglia.

On April 29, IFFBoston will present its award ceremony, including the third annual Karen Schmeer Award for Excellence in Documentary Editing. This award was created to honor the memory of wBoston documentary film editor Karen Schmeer who died in a hit-and-run accident in January 2010.
