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.
