Philosophy & Mission

Boston Film Gala, an annual two-day event, presents filmmakers with opportunities to showcase their work, directly connect to their audience, network within their industry and share resources to build a stronger film community on the East Coast.

For those attending, BFG presents them with unique stories alongside a platform to view and engage with work and concepts that are unfamiliar in the mainstream film world.

In 2015, the first Boston Film Gala, comprised of screenings for short films and a filmmaker Q&A panel, allowed audiences, filmmakers and sponsors to interact directly with each other!

This year, BFG has expanded to a weekend event that spans two days, includes feature length films, more filmmaker Q&As, additional sponsor opportunities and a Gala (true to its name!) to celebrate the amazing local talent!

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.

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!
