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.
