Ah, yes. Life is about choices. Hard choices. No one ever really likes to make those choices, but you have to. You can’t get through life without them. Some of them are life changing, some of them are fun, some of them might get you in trouble with the law. You never know what you might get out of life from each choice. Unless it’s the kind of choice you have to make today and for the next several days: which movie to see at the 2016 Independent Film Festival Boston.
With the start of day two of IFFB, it’s time to make choices, and they won’t be easy. There are great narratives, intense documentaries, and stellar shorts programs to choose from. And so, eCinemaBoston is here to help you make those choices.
Here’s todays schedule – as you can see, it is GREAT! So many good films and shorts to choose from, so many films you may have already heard of, and others you might think sound good, even though their titles are completely new to you. It’s up to you. Click on each title for film and ticket information. And remember, tickets can be purchased at the box office for each venue as well – if you don’t have tickets already, there will be “rush lines” at both the Brattle and Somerville for last minute ticketing if there are seats left. At least one film is sold out today, and there could be more, so DON’T DELAY – if you want to go, buy your tickets NOW!

Don’t forget to check out the official site for all the info on all the great films coming in the next few days, as well as parties that can be attended, great merch to help the cause, and such. And donate if you can – Independent Film Festival Boston is ENTIRELY volunteer-driven – they can’t make this great fest happen without your help!
And be sure to check out Subject:CINEMA the weekend of May 21-22 for TWO huge podcasts – our annual (and MASSIVE) Boston Springs A Fethival shows – all the fests and film series from Boston’s busy spring festival season – coverage of the festivals, reviews of the films, and more.
