Boston 2007.1: More Than a Feeling

Boston 2007.1: More Than a Feeling

Landed in Boston around 4 p.m. on Thursday. Checked in to the hotel. Got on the subway. Stopped off in Somerville, to check in at the Independent Film Festival Boston. I’m loving the weather this weekend here. A little rainy, but clear and chilly most of the time. I’m seeing films, sitting on a panel, and will also write a recap piece for indieWIRE, covering the whole experience. Nicest surprise of the fest so far: Philippe Falardeau’s French-Canadian family comedy, Congorama. In the interest of my upcoming article, I’ll refrain from too much detail, and just get on with some pictures:

(At the comfortable Filmmakers Lounge, it’s always fun and games. Here’s, on the left, ‘Great World of Sound’ director Craig Zobel on a team with ‘Pretty in the Face’ director Nate Meyer. They’re facing off against ‘Hannah Takes the Stairs’ captains Joe Swanberg and Kris Williams.)

(On Thursday night, it was all about the candlepin bowling, a New England tradition.)
