Boston-based cinephiles can count themselves lucky all year round. With the area’s wealth of first-run theaters, arthouses, and museums, to be a movie lover in Boston is to enjoy a continual embarrassment of riches. But for the past eight years, the New England springtime has brought with it the Independent Film Festival Boston, a days-long event that threatens to overwhelm even the most seasoned Boston cinephile with its packed schedule of features, shorts, documentaries, and narrative films from filmmakers both new and established, local and international. This year’s festival opens with The Extra Man, a comedy from American Splendor directors Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman, and concludes with Saturday Night, James Franco’s nonfiction chronicle of a week in the life of NBC’s Saturday Night Live. The festival will also feature new works from Ken Loach, Todd Solondz, and Michael Winterbottom, among many others.

The 2010 Independent Film Festival of Boston runs from April 21—28. Please refer to this page during the next few weeks for reviews of select festival films.
