The Burbank International Film Festival takes the day off from movie screenings, but continues its calendar of events with an evening full of seminars and music videos. Here's a run down of today's events.

If you prefer to watch films rather than make them, you might be interested in the evenings block of music videos presented at Barney's Beanery from 6:00-8:00 PM.
