BSAF 2019: Independent Film Festival Boston, Day Three

IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE! Boston Springs A Fethival 2019 is officially underway, and we’ll have info for all the various festivals and their schedules every day, so be sure to keep your browser turned to for all the latest info! It’s been a long, exhausting, and exhilarating season, and the FINAL FEST OF THE SPRING is here!!!

Here’s the honest truth – I am betting that day three of IFFB this year will be largely unaffected by going up against tonight’s premiere of the blockbuster “Avengers: Endgame“. Why? Because fest goers are a special breed – they know they can see the blockbusters anytime, and that this might be their only chance to catch something really unique. Tonight, IFFB has a ton of special guests, a World Premiere, and two SOLD OUT shows that have NO RUSH LINE, so if you missed tickets, you’re out of luck for tonight. Below is today’s schedule – click on the link for full film info and ticket purchase links, and remember, this is at the time of publication; films could be sold out after we go to press, so your best bet is always to check the official fest website at for the latest status on availability!

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!
