Oct. 13-22

Various locations

You could be one of those people who just springs for tickets to the awards ceremony and maybe the opening-night event. But that’s kind of missing the point. This is a film festival, which makes it a unique opportunity to overdose on movies that may not ever make it to the multiplex or your nearby Redbox. An added bonus of actually going to screenings is the atmosphere. You’ll be surrounded by people—including, often, the filmmakers themselves—who are easy targets for between-screening chats. Just don’t look for boxing robots or car chases.
