IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE! As we told you several weeks back, spring is the busiest season for film festivals in Metro Boston. And we’ve still got ONE LAST FESTIVAL to go!

What a lineup today! A lot of hot “buzz” films on the schedule, including “Beast”, with Robert Pattenson and Mia Wasikowska, “Hot Summer Nights” starring hot Oscar nominee and current golden boy Timothee Chalamet, “First Reformed”, “Blindspotting” and “On Chesil Beach” for your perusal today. Remember, any films marked “RUSH LINE ONLY” are technically SOLD OUT – to have your chance to see the film or short series you need to be there early to snatch up any last minute tickets that may become available! Also keep in mind that a number of films may have special guests, such as a director, producer, or one of the stars or subjects of the film in attendance for discussion after the film.

IFFB, as it’s commonly known, will continue through next Wednesday, May 2. Screenings for the rest of this week continue at the Somerville Theatre in Somerville, as well as Cambridge’s Brattle Theatre, then moves to the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline for the final two nights. There is a TON of movies showing at the fest, including some favorites from all of the major January fest circuit, SXSW, and Toronto, so you do NOT want to miss out! We’ll have day to day ticket info here, but to be sure you can get in to what you want to see, check out the IFFB’s official site and order tickets as early as possible!  As noted above, there WILL be Rush Lines for most features at the locations, but you are NOT guaranteed a seat if they sell out – only a limited number of tickets will be available. Be here for each daily schedule and we’ll let you now if things are sold out, and also if you need to buy RIGHT AWAY!

Be sure to stay informed! And IFFB will be part of our sister podcast Subject:CINEMA’s massive BSAF coverage throughout the month of May, and also in our huge BSAF SuperGuide PDF online magazine, also coming in mid-May!
