We’d like to express our most sincere thanks and gratitude to: The Brattle Theatre, AVID, BudgetDCP, Regeneration Tattoo, Kush Groove Dispensary, Utopia, Shudder, and Roadside Attractions/Lionsgate for their invaluable support; to all the BUFF and Brattle volunteers and staff; to all the participating filmmakers; and to our incredible audience, who came out over the past five days to celebrate cinema.

It was thrilling to gather, devour, and explore the variety of films and themes that comprised this year’s lineup together. It’s a sincere labor of love to put this event together year after year and we do it with just a handful of cash, no corporate sponsorship, and very few hours of sleep; a feat of a 100%-volunteer team driven by passion for films and our film community.

Against all odds, we’ve made it here – exhausted and victorious – to the end of our twenty-fourth edition and we already can’t wait to see you back at the Brattle this time next year.
