It's had some rocky times, but the Boston Film Festival is back for its
28th year, this time ensconced in the classy digs of the refurbished Stuart
Street Playhouse. Among the features scheduled are Head Games, in which Steve James of The Interrupters fame takes on sports head injuries, and Alexia
Oldini's debut feature, To Redemption,
about dark family secrets.
The Boston Film Festival,
now in its 27th year, has seen its
ups and downs. But its organizers definitely made a shrewd move when they
settled into one of the city's classiest venues, the Stuart Street Playhouse,
where it opens its weeklong run of world premieres. They include Peter Askin's Certainty (6:45 pm), the
tale of a young couple who undergo Catholic pre-nuptial counseling.
