Boston Free Films: 11/4 to 11/11
The great schedule from last week got all messed up because of Hurricane Sandy, but we are thankful there wasn't much damage around here. The New England Conservatory Brando clips and live music event has been rescheduled to January. Some of the other canceled events have been rescheduled as well.

This is still a pretty good week with a variety of film opportunities. Check out next weekend's Boston Anarchist Film Festival for a taste of something different.

LATE ADDITION: BU Tournees Film Festival will screen "Romantics anonymous" on Wednesday and "A Cat in Paris" on Friday. For some reason, they didn't post onto the BU main calendar. Fortunately, I caught their Facebook page.

Boston Free Films: 10/28 to 11/4
I've often accused Northeastern University of being a bit stingy with their free film offerings -- hard to find on the calendar, not publicized, etc. But they make up for it by offering a Halloween night lecture on the 100th anniversary of Dracula followed by *three* simultaneous screenings of Dracula films.

In other Halloween offerings, Monday night brings us New England Conservatory's annual combination of film and live music. This year, expect Marlon Brando clips.

And in the category of off-beat film offerings, check out the Internet Cat Video Festival playing (outdoors!) at UMass Boston on Tuesday. I'm betting that Hurricane Sandy has a say in that event.

Lots of other goodies, (mostly) non-Halloween related with plenty of filmmaker events (I count at least seven).

Pay close attention to the calendar -- always plenty of last minute treats.

Check out my Twitter feed (@bostonfreefilms) for any updates.

Highlights:

* Tufts Film Series screens "Dark Shadows" this evening and "The Iron Giant" and "The Incredibles" next weekend. Check tuftsfilmseries.com Wednesday or Thursday for updates.

* The BPL Copley Square Monday Night Film Series continues with "The Americans on Hell’s Highway". Canceled because of Hurricane Sandy.
* On Monday, the West End Museum will screen a taped version of "Tosca". RSVP requested.
* Boston College will show "Niños de la Memoria (Children of Memory)" on Monday with the filmmaker.
* On Monday, New England Conservatory holds their annual Halloween film/music event with Marlon Brando film clips and live music.

Boston Free Films: 8/19 - 8/26
The end is near. The end of the summer movie season, that is. Next weekend, is the summer ending Films at the Gate in Chinatown. MIT LSC finishes its summer run this week and several of the outdoor screening series are either finished or will finish this week. But this may also be the busiest week yet of outdoor screenings.

Movies will be a bit slow until after Labor Day when the students get back and get organized. Expect events to pop up quickly.

Enjoy.
