It’s been awhile since the Sunday Night Film Club has been active. I hope you all are well in these crazy times!
Our friends at IFFBoston are hosting a virtual edition of their yearly Fall Focus mini-festival! You can find out more information about the lineup, as well as purchase passes and tickets at their site:
If people are interested maybe we can all do a zoom meetup Sunday evening to discuss the series as well as catch up…
Just wanted to drop a reminder to rent and watch our pick “The Rabbi Goes West”, before the Q&A this Sunday at 8pm. Here are the details from last week’s post:
Our friends over at IFFBoston are hosting their first Virtual Screening of the new documentary “The Rabbi Goes West”. The movie will be streamable on Vimeo beginning this Sunday, May 24th through June 4th. You can rent a 72 streaming window and can pre-order it now. IFFBoston will benefit from the proceeds. You can find more details and pre-order here. They are also hosting a live Q&A on Youtube with the filmmakers and subjects on Sunday, May 31st at 8pm.
I’ve decided that we will “meet” via video chat AFTER the Q&A, and we will be using Jitsi Meet. It will work right in your browser, but they also have mobile apps if you want to use your phone or tablet. Links to those apps are available on the Jitsi site.
I will send the meeting code out via email on Sunday afternoon, so if you have already filled out the survey from last week, you are all set. If you are interested in joining us and did NOT fill out the survey, please email me at sean <at> sundaynightfilmclub <dot> com. Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions.
Hopefully this will go smoothly!
Long time, no see!
I’ve had a few members reach out asking if there’d be any interest in doing virtual Sunday Night Film Club meetings. So let’s give it a shot!

I haven’t decided whether it’d make more sense to virtually get together before the Q&A (so it’s earlier in the day) or afterwards (so we can discuss its contents). I also haven’t yet decided which virtual meeting platform we would use. If this is something you are interested in, please fill out this form, which will help me know who’s interested and how we should go about this.
Due to the current advice regarding social distancing due to COVID-19, the Boston SNFC will be on indefinite hiatus. We will post here (as well as through all the usual channels) when we resume our schedule.
As is customary, the Boston Sunday Night Film Club will be taking this Sunday, February 9th off so members can enjoy (or avoid) the Academy Awards. We will return to our regular schedule the following Sunday, February 16th.
The Boston Sunday Night Film Club will not meet on this Sunday, February 2nd. We will likely take next Sunday, February 9th off as well for the Oscars.
We should be back to our regular schedule on February 16th.
The Boston Sunday Night Film Club will be taking this Sunday, September 29th, off as all of the usual hosts are unavailable.
We will return to our normal schedule the following Sunday, October 6th.
During IFFBoston 2019, the Sunday Night Film Club pick on Sunday 4/28th at 6pm will be COLD CASE HAMMARSKJOLD. Info and tickets are available here.
“Danish filmmaker Mads Brugger investigates the death of UN General Secretary Dag Hammarskjold, whose airplane crashed in Northern Rhodesia in 1961. Or did it?”
I tried to hold out to see if the forecast for Sunday Night improved, but it’s looking pretty snowy up until the late evening. So the Sunday Night Film Club will not meet this Sunday, January 20th. Stay safe and warm.
We will resume our normal schedule next Sunday, January 27th.
The Boston Sunday Night Film Club is taking this Sunday, December 23rd off due to the impending holidays. We hope to return the following Sunday, December 30th (depending on host availability).
