    The Independent Film Festival Boston, a 501(c)3 non-profit, occurs annually in April. Our mission is to showcase emerging filmmakers, musicians and visual artists and provide attendees direct access in interactive environments to these artists. Created in 2003, IFFBoston takes in the Boston area's finest art-house cinemas. Over 1,200 films are submitted to the festival each year and roughly the best 90-100 of those are shown. Over 120 screenings take place, most with director Q&A sessions following them. There are also nightly parties for guest filmmakers and passholders as well as weekend panel discussions. The Independent Film Festival of Boston was named "one of the top five film series in Boston" by the Boston Society of Film Critics in the festival's inaugural year of 2003 and was the only film festival on that list. The book The Ultimate Film Festival Survival Guide named the festival "the premier film festival in Boston" and the festival has since been recognized by the Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Boston Phoenix, Boston Magazine, Indiewire, and countless filmmakers as "the premier film festival in Boston". In 2008 Moviemaker Magazine named IFFBoston on a list of "The Top 25 Film Festivals Worth The Entry Fee".The festival debuted in 2003 with an audience of 10,000 people and has consistently grown in size each year since (most recently with 23,400 attendees in 2008) making it one of the largest film festivals in New England.
