BOSTON SPRINGS A FETHIVAL: 2016 Independent Film Festival Boston, Day 5

iff-2016-300x175 2016 Independent Film Festival Boston swings into it’s back half beginning today, and there’s still TONS of screenings to go…

Day five brings two of the most talked about films from the January festival season – the critically raved about Hunt For The Wilderpeople and The Fits, plus a ton of other great flicks that have gotten a lot of positive word of mouth, so Sunday is going to be a great film day!

Here’s today’s schedule –  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 – films marked “Rush Tickets Only” means that advance tickets are SOLD OUT. Given the number of high-profile titles today, there very likely could be more sell outs before the day is out, so DON’T DELAY – if you want to go, buy your tickets NOW!
