Reston Renamed Hill Valley for Washington West International Film Festival
Today marks the exact day Doc Brown took Marty into the future — to Hill Valley, October 21, 2015.
In honor of this historic milestone, it’s Back to the Future for Reston, Virginia today, as the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has voted to change the name of the planned community to “Hill Valley” from October 21st through October 27th in honor of the 30th Anniversary of the Back to the Future trilogy and in correspondence with the duration of the 5th annual Washington West International Film Festival.
“Whoa. They really cleaned this place up. Looks brand new!”
Over the next seven days, the Washington West International Film Festival (you can get your tickets here) will be featuring over 51 films and events, with the highlight being a DeLorean Time Machine Grand Entrance and Display and the Back to the Future red carpet walk on Sunday, October 25th featuring such legendary guests as Christopher Lloyd, Back To The Future co-writer and co-producer, Bob Gale, Claudia Wells (Marty’s girlfriend, Jennifer), and more. Proceeds from the evening’s box office will support the Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson’s Research.
