Tomorrow night sees the kick off of the the eighth annual United Nations Association Film Festival at Stanford University. With screenings in several buildings across campus (we love college campus maps, it makes us feel like a hopeful freshman all over again), the festival runs from Wednesday through Sunday.

We love that the festival is broken up into "sessions," so for one low ticket price we can see multiple films at one sitting. Our personal picks include Wednesday's fascinating-looking , Thursday's excellent and highly recommended The Education of Shelby Knox, Saturday's Boxers and Ballerinas, and Sunday's Suckerfish.

Then again, we'd happily see any of these high-quality and carefully chosen (out of 270 international submissions only 32 films were chosen for this years festival) movies. All tickets are free to Stanford students, and nominally priced for everyone else. If only the UN would intervene with our cruel employers so we could take in the whole thing!
