Boston Free Films - 9/23 to 9/30
It's another good week of free films in Boston. The UMass Boston Film Series is kicking off this week and every screening will feature a discussion with the filmmaker. If you are into German film-making, check out the Werner Schroeter Symposium and screenings at the Goethe-Institut Boston. Several other screenings have filmmakers on hand. For lighter fare, consider the free screenings of "Men in Black III" next week at MIT.

Stay tuned.

Enjoy.

Saw "Love Free or Die" which you publicized through your Goocal. It was terrific. Thanks again for keeping this list going. I comment rarely but I use it all the time.
