Now in its ninth year, the Independent Film Festival Boston is poised to once again take over some of the Boston area’s best-known and best-loved arthouse theaters, bringing with it long lines of frenzied festivalgoers and too many good films for one pass holder to choose from. It’s overwhelming in the best possible way, and it frequently rewards the curiosity of its attendees with that most sought-after film festival feeling: a genuine sense of discovery. This year’s fest opens and closes with lovable, if disparate, TV personalities: Being Elmo profiles the eponymous Muppet and his puppeteer Kevin Clash, while Conan ‘’Brien Can’t Stop follows the late night host on a high-profile national tour. In between, audiences will once again enjoy a wealth of documentaries; rare access to independent short films; and a wide range of narrative features, including new works by Miranda July, Takashi Miike, and Michael Winterbottom. The 2011 Independent Film Festival Boston runs from April 27–May 4. Please refer to this page during the next few weeks for reviews of select festival films.
