Boston Film Fest sets dates, new venue

After several years of flying under the radar and letting competing showcases take root, the Boston Film Festival is getting organized early and seems ready to take off for its 26th edition.

Translated: the all-volunteer Independent Film Festival of Boston has been kicking the older festival's ass. (Apparently a 19-year head start didn't help.) I don't know much about the fall festival but it seems to me Boston is a town big enough to support (at least) two quality indie film events each year. The current Boston FF site doesn't give any insight as to the festival's past programming, so I'll be curious to see what they come up with for their 2010 slate.
