Have those choices started to hurt yet? It’s hard, isn’t it? There is SO MUCH to be seen at the 2016 Independent Film Festival Boston and it makes your choices as to what to make time to see incredibly difficult, doesn’t it?
On day three, there’s a number of critically acclaimed films, including the MetroBoston premiere of the devastating documentary Newtown, and one of the biggest “feel good” hits from Sundance, Morris from America. And guess what? They’re playing opposite each other. Oh, Decisions, Decisions…which way to go? Only you can make that mind of yours up and decide what is your very own “Must See Film”. Plus there’s a ton of other great flicks as well.
Here’s today’s schedule – as you can see, the choices are once again going to be difficult! 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. No sellout today yet – at least not as of press time – but given the nature of the rabid IFFB fan, there very likely could be before the day is out, so DON’T DELAY – if you want to go, buy your tickets NOW!

Now even though you’re getting primed with films for the last few days, you’re not even close to being ready, I’ll bet, for the weekend – Saturday and Sunday each bring 20+ films and panels to the Hub at venues all over the area – AAAAAAAAAAA! But you CAN do it – see what you can and make a list of the other films you can’t make it to, because most of them will be in the area during general release later this summer or fall…
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. You can find MetroBoston’s oldest and longest running film podcast at http://ecinemaone.com and http://subjectcinema.com!
See you tomorrow with the MASSIVE Saturday schedule – Man oh Man, is it a film lover’s paradise or what? 🙂
