Heads Up! IFFBoston Screening for 4/27 – FORT TILDEN

The Independent Film Festival of Boston starts this coming Wednesday, 4/23 at the Somerville Theater and quickly spreads to the Brattle, Coolidge and UMass Boston.

I (Sean) highly recommend you see as many movies as you can during the festival…   It is rare that a film festival of this quality and size is still so accessible by the average movie fan as opposed to industry insiders.  I wrote this blog post a few years ago (and have updated it since) about my tips on best enjoying IFFBoston.

The SNFC always chooses on of the Sunday screenings during the festival as its film, and this year is no exception. This year we will be seeing FORT TILDEN at the Somerville Theatre.  It is highly recommended that you purchase tickets in advance as the festival can get quite popular.

About

The Sunday Night Film Club (SNFC) gets together at a Boston-area theatre every Sunday to watch a film as a group, and then discuss it over dinner and drinks. There is no cost to join the club (other than your ticket and anything you may spend on food/drink afterwards) and there's no obligation to attend every week. It's just a very casual group of people that like film, period.
