The Boston International Film Festival is an annual event that brings almost 100 movies to the big screen over a ten-day period. Focusing on independent works from all over the world, you can see everything from documentaries and shorts to comedies and dramas. Screenwriters, directors and actors are also invited, making for an intimate scene where you can listen to artists talk about their work and meet many of the filmmakers in person. You even might run into a few celebrities! Over the years, the festival has presented several award-winning films, and 2015 promises to bring together an incredible selection of movies. Festival attendees can expect a strong contingent of local filmmakers from the Boston area as artists compete for annual prizes. Taking place from April 9 to 19, this is one of the biggest film events of the year in New England.
