Boston Film Gala: Not your typical film festival.

An annual, local, two-day event to promote & showcase local filmmakers, entertain the community & connect filmmakers to opportunities for growth.  
Oh yeah, did we mention the swanky-yet-casual Gala and raffle, art gallery and community support?

Books are meant to be read. Radio is meant to be heard. Film is meant to be viewed.
Boston Film Gala
Festival Directors, Evin Charles Anderson and Tatiana Ivan are on a mission. They want to foster the filmmaking community right here in New England, and create opportunities for filmmakers to show their work, without breaking the bank.

Boston Film Gala gives filmmakers a voice and a bigger platform from which to work – by helping with marketing and connecting audiences to the films and people behind them. Its future mission: to bring affordable distribution, education and career resources to future filmmakers in the area, and nurture their further growth.

Let’s keep and attract creative talent and crew here in Boston and New England – without reliance on Hollywood, NYC or Chicago!


Project Hope logo with tagline  

This year, Boston Film Gala will donate a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales to Project Hope, a multi-service agency at the forefront of efforts in Boston to move families beyond homelessness and poverty. They provide low-income women with children access to education, jobs, housing, and emergency services.
