Attend this film fest: Belmont World Film Festival @ Studio Cinema

A festival nestled in a sleepy suburb has grown into one of the area's best-programmed and most rewarding film events. Now in its 12th year, the Belmont World Film Festival, which runs through April 29, opens tonight with Argentinean director Sebastián Borensztein's Chinese Take-Away (2011). In it, a reclusive Buenos Aires oddball whose hobby is collecting bizarre news stories uncharacteristically helps out a stranded Chinese stranger. Lotte Buiting, a Harvard doctoral candidate specializing in Latin American literature and cinema, is the guest speaker. And for those who want a real taste of world cinema (for an extra $12), the screening is preceded at 6 pm by a reception serving Chinese food and Argentinean wines.
