LIVE AT THE SOMERVILLE THEATRE AND VIRTUALLY STREAMING
Boston SciFi, aka The Boston Science Fiction Film Festival is a cinematic event held every year in February. In 2022, it will be from February 16th to the 22nd. It will be a hybrid event, a combo live and virtual. Traditionally Boston SciFi features 30 features, roughly 75 shorts, 10 workshops/panels and a bunch of parties. It all ends with a cinematic overload called THE MARATHON, a 24 hour non-stop binge view of classic, not-so-classic and downright schlocky films. It comes with guests, games and surprises. Festival Passes and Marathon tickets are available at The STORE. Individual shows will be on sale closer to the Fest.
We were born at the legendary Orson Welles Cinema just outside of Harvard Square in Cambridge MA. 2022 marks our 47th anniversary, and yes we are the longest running genre fest in America. We have weathered fires, blizzards, and now pandemics. We have witnessed the days of VHS, the reign of DVDs, the emergence of cable TV, and the challenge of streaming videoes. And yet we have not only survived we have thrived.
It is our commitment to science fiction storytelling coupled with the support of filmmakers and patrons that has made this so. That is what the Orson Welles was about. That is what we are about and that is what we will always be about. All you have to do is look around and know, THE FUTURE IS NOW. The future is the 47th Boston Science Fiction Film Festival and Marathon.
