The superindie Boise Film Festival is back for a second year of fun, quirky independent films, shorts, industry panel discussions and, of course, parties.
▪ Tim Bartell’s “Dirty Beautiful” is the opening night film at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, at the BSU Special Events Center. It’s a quirky love story about a lonely artist who brings a young woman drifter back to his apartment to live with him. Then party with your fellow festival attendees at 9 p.m. at Amsterdam Lounge, 609 W. Main St., Boise, after the flick. The party is free to attend.
▪ See who wins the Boise Film Festival Awards from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, at Payette Brewery, 733 S. Pioneer St., Boise. Announcements are at 7:30 p.m.
▪ Watch a screening of Idaho-made short films at noon, Sunday, Sept. 25, followed by an panel discussion about Idaho film at 1 p.m. at the SPEC.
