Boston International Film Festival 4/17-4/26

You are cordially invited to attend the 7th Annual Boston International Film Festival. The festival will feature a Red Carpet entrance and an opening and closing night Galas. It will run from Friday, April 17, 2009 to Sunday, April 26, 2009. It will take place at the AMC/Loews Theater, located at 175 Tremont Street, Boston Common.

The festival will feature over 100 short and feature length films, with categories including narrative, animation and documentary. The festival will include films from 38 countries from 5 continents.

The festival is the largest in Massachusetts and one of the largest in the United States. It is recognized by major institutions and corporations in the entertainment industry, as one of the leading film events. Since its inception, the festival has strived to support independent films, made both internationally and locally. It has served as a platform, in which to unite the diverse Boston community by highlighting both global diversity, as well as cultural similarities.

There are two opening night films. The first is "What Would It Look Like?" A documentary that asks us to reflect on the state of the world and ourselves, and to listen more closely to what is being asked of us at this time of unprecedented global transformation. The second is "What Doesn't Kill You", a riveting story, starring Mark Ruffalo, Ethan Hawke, and Amanda Peet. It was directed by Brian Goodman, a Boston native filmmaker. The casting was done by Boston Casting. The diversity of these two films is a good example of how the festival supports such a range of approaches to cinema.
