Welcome to the 13th Annual Boston International Film Festival. We are proud that for thirteen years we have been able to serve the city of Boston, by sharing films from over 60 countries. We have enabled filmmakers from every continent to come together to share their art. The Boston international Film Festival has become a lasting institution in Boston, and we are happy to continue bringing international films to our city. We welcome all people to join us in celebrating this exciting event. The filmmakers will be sharing their diverse and powerful visions of humanity. Our greatest hope is that through these films the audience will be inspired and encouraged to embrace all the world’s cultural diversity and work towards a more understanding, peaceful world.

Patrick Jerome, Founder of BostonIFF
