After you've attended the Boston Society of Film Critics Annual Awards ceremony, the Oscars might seem anticlimactic. Among
those expected at this year's extravaganza is Jeff Malmberg, winner of the
society's Best Documentary and Best Newcomer awards for his brilliant, sui generis film Marwencol, which will
screen after the event. Among the other treats: a video especially made for the
occasion by Best Supporting Actress Juliette Lewis (for Conviction), and several local film critics
making the most of their few minutes on stage. Preceded by a reception at the
Casablanca at 5:30, the ceremony takes place at the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle
St, Cambridge | January 30 @ 7 pm | $15; $10 students | 617.876.6837 or brattlefilm.org.
