The 10th Annual Independent Film Festival in Boston is almost here!
The festival is from April 25 – May 2, 2012. Visit the official event website for details. There are volunteer and donation opportunities available.
I am so excited to be investigating and writing about Boston’s independent film industry. I expect to see some great films and meet some interesting people.
There will be a special fundraising event for the Independent Film Festival Boston on Monday, February 27th at 7: 30 pm Coolidge Corner Theatre 290 Harvard St, Brookline.
Stephen Tobolowsky and host David Chen will be presenting stories from The Tobolowsky Files. General admission tickets are $20.00 and $17.00 for Coolidge members.
The Coolidge Corner Theatre describes the event as:
“Tobolowsky brings wit and insight, not to mention his actor’s eye for drama, to stories from all periods of his own life. If you are a fan of The Moth or This American Life, we highly recommend this event – it’s certain to be a memorable evening of stories and conversation with a one-of-a-kind performer.”
My plan is to be a volunteer for the event, hopefully meet some important industry people. I also want to check out local independent theaters like the Coolidge Corner Theater and the Kendall Square Cinema.
As long as I can remember I have had this interest in independent films. I was probably nine or ten when I saw my first indie film. Since then, I have developed such an appreciation for good movies, but more specifically, indie films. I love the raw quality that these films offer. I like the dark places and realness many of these movies portray. Keep following as I begin to investigate Boston’s own Indie Industry.
