We are finally nearing the end of the exhilarating and exhausting 2017 Boston Springs A Fethival season, as the last major fest of the spring, the Independent Film Festival Boston, is officially underway
It’s Sunday, and there are fifteen films, plus several shorts programs, and two more panel discussions today; Once again, the films fill an amazing array of interests – there’s quite literally something for everyone on today’s program. including one of the most buzzed-about films of the spring in an already sold out screening, and the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival Audience Award winner for Best Narrative Film.
Here’s the schedule for today – most screenings take place at the Somerville Theatre, with a couple screenings at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge. Box office opens at 6 PM at both venues for this evening’s screenings. Click through on each title to get a full synopsis of the film, as well as ticketing info – remember, IFFB frequently sells out of many of the films it screens, and there are RUSH lines at both venues the night of the screening in case you miss out on early ticketing and want to snag any tickets that become available at the last minute. And for info all at once on all the films, check out the IFFB official website!
