The annual Boston Film Festival is taking place this weekend starting tomorrow. Andy Garcia will be kicking it off at the Revere Hotel with a viewing of his film “Middleton”. This film festival takes place Friday, Saturday and Sunday Oct 25th to 27th. Tickets can be bought through the site but here is the direct link if you are in a rush. Though Middleton was not filmed here it will be neat to have him in town for those of us who may remember more of his main stream movies like The Untouchables and the Oceans 11 Movies.
There are 2 movies that were filmed in the Boston area that will be featured at the festival, “Siren” and “George of the Center”. The first was filmed in Millis and the second in Billerica. I am including previews of both Middleton and George of the Center but there wasn’t one available for Siren. George of the Center definitely has that New England feel to it.
These are just 3 of the movies and short films that will be showing at the Boston Film Festival. Take a look, it might be good counterbalance to the sports madness that is a big part of Boston right now.
