Boston Science Fiction Film Festival

Boston Science Fiction Film Festival

Type: Regular shortfilm festival
Location: Somerville, Massachusetts
Start Month: February


The Boston Science Fiction Film Festival and Marathon (“Boston SciFi”) is an 11-day cinematic event held at the historic Somerville Theatre from February 5th to the 15th. The 2016 edition marks our 41st anniversary as the oldest genre fest in America.
The first nine days consist of a film festival that emphasizes emerging directors with distinct visions from around the globe. The Festival concludes with The Marathon (a.k.a., “The ‘Thon”), a 24-hour orgiastic motion picture endurance test featuring classic, new and schlock films. Think of it as binge viewing with 750 close friends. It starts at noon on the 14th and ends at noon on President’s Day.
