IFFBoston 2021 (is Virtual!)

Greetings, all! I hope you all have been well and that you’ve had a chance to get vaccinated (assuming you are able to)! I’m really looking forward to seeing you in the next few months as we start to reenter some approximation of normal society! I’m not exactly sure when the club will return, but it seems sooner than it has in a long while.

Until then, I come bearing news: Our friends over at the Independent Film Festival Boston is about to begin its 2021 festival, which due to COVID-19 is 100% virtual this year. But it is no less ambitious than the usual Spring extravaganza, and a welcome return after having to skip last spring!

Tickets are on sale now, and the lineup looks great! It seems like most (all?) of the offerings have a 48-hour streaming window, so it should be somewhat easier to fit the festival into your plans.

It has been suggest that we have a follow-up club zoom after the festival to discuss it, and I think that’s a great idea. Perhaps we should do it May 23rd (to give stream stragglers a chance to catch up)? Leave a comment below if you’re interested in that. And if you have opinions about how the club should return to in-person events please leave a comment too!

  1. I think a Zoom film discussion would be great! Not sure how quickly I’ll be able to watch these movies, as have just signed up to watch all the Oscar shorts via the Coolidge Theater’s website, but I’ll try to fit them all in!
