I had the chance to write about the Berkshire International Film Festival for this Sunday’s Boston Globe. This means I’ve now written about this festival for four different publications over the course of its six years; it was a challenge to avoiding repeating myself and still keep it fresh, while still introducing the event to the publication’s readers, since the Globe had not previously covered the BIFF to this extent. You can read the article on the Globe’s website, here.
In a nice twist, my feature shared the front of the Movies section with a big piece on Terrence Malick, whose new film (Tree of Life) won the Palme d’Or last week and was just added to the BIFF schedule, as part of the Saturday night tribute to Douglas Trumbull (who supervised the special effects on the film). It looks like the Kendal Square Theatre in Somerville is the only other place in the area where you can see this film for now. (The BIFF screening, btw, is only open to folks with $250 or $500 passes
I’ll be tweeting from the BIFF, and likely updating this space with reviews and photos.
