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.
