The Boston Science Fiction Film Festival(“Boston SciFi”) is an 11-day cinematic event held at the historic Somerville Theatre from February 8th to the 18th. The 2019 edition marks our 44th anniversary as the longest running genre fest in America.

The first nine days consist of a traditional film festival. Whether they be features, shorts, webisodes, workshops, parties or a new Hollywood film, BostonSciFi emphasizes emerging directors with distinct visions from around the globe.

The Festival concludes with The Original Binge View, The Marathon (a.k.a., “The ‘Thon”), a 24-hour orgiastic motion picture endurance test. Imagine 750 close friends (maybe) sitting in a vintage movie theatre straining eyeballs and tush muscles watching everything from classics, soon to be classics and the occasional schlock disaster.

That's THE MARATHON. It starts at noon on the 17th and ends at noon on President’s Day.

All at the Somerville Theatre.
