Boston SciFi is an 5-day event with distinctive parts: "The Fest" and “The Thon”.
The Fest is 5 days are a mix of submitted and judged films. Tossed into this will be curated films that our experienced team searches for. They also will add a few classic films, cartoons and more. There are also workshops, panels, and other special events. There a number of events/parties for filmmakers including weekend brunches and evening parties. They are convivial networking opportunities with fellow filmmakers and the industry.
As with every year, the closing event is “The Marathon”, aka The Thon. Where the greats, the not-so-greats, the not-even-close-to-great films screen in a 13 film, 24 hour roller coaster of cinema and community. Think of it binge viewing with hundreds of your best friends, even if you just met. Since we’ve been doing this for 48 years, we consider ourselves the “Original Binge View.” They also consider themselves a Sci-Fi equivalent of Brigadoon, where every year a small town emerges from the bleak New England winter to warm us up with good stories, good food and good films.
So welcome to SF49, the Boston Science Fiction Film Festival, the oldest, and perhaps the coolest, genre festival in the US with a passion for film that comes with age.
