IFFB, as it’s commonly known, will continue through next Wednesday, May 1. Screenings for the rest of this week continue at the Somerville Theatre, as well as Cambridge’s Brattle Theatre, then moves to the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline for the final two nights. I have to admit, we had to pick and choose this year, because we’re doing so much right now that we don’t have time to catch as many films as we’d like to, but we’ll be in attendance at three films over the weekend and on Monday, so if you see us at “Love Antosha”, “Cold Case Hammarskjold” or “Well Groomed”, please say HI! 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! 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.

We’ll have your schedule every morning during IFFB’s run, and links to film and ticket information. We’ll also be covering this and the other NINE festivals and film series that happen in greater Boston between March 1 and May 1 every year coming up in late May on our two part “Boston Springs A Fethival” episodes of eCinemaOne‘s Subject:CINEMA podcast! And be sure to keep connected with our Instagram for pix of the festival!
