Well, that was QUITE a weekend, wasn’t it? From the amount of incredibly positive tweets and Facebook posts that I’ve seen, everyone was having a grand old time this year at the 13th annual Independent Film Festival Boston!
Today is the last day of multiple choice films you have to decide on at the Somerville and Brattle Theatres – tomorrow the festival moves lock, stock, and barrel to the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline for it’s final two nights. But I am getting ahead of the game – let’s see what there is to offer tonight! Here we go, by theater – descriptions are from the official IFFB Website at http://iffboston.org – be sure to check it out for full info on the festival. Shows that are technically sold out are marked with “Rush tickets only”, meaning that there may be a few seats left when it gets close to showtime!
