About Boston SciFi Film Festival & Marathon (Boston SciFi)
Boston SciFi aka the Boston Science Fiction Film Festival is an award-winning, beloved cinematic
event held at the historic Somerville Theatre (1914), in one of the coolest cities in the world,
Boston. It starts with a regular festival of submitted & curated films and ends with the biggest
binge view ever - a 24 hour,13 film, nonstop, eyeball straining Marathon. It all began at the
legendary Orson Welles Cinema right next to Harvard University. As America’s longest-running
genre fest, Film Freeway has named Boston SciFi as one of the Top 100 Best Reviewed Festivals.
