You know how I love movies filmed in Boston .... which reminds me that I haven't seen The Fighter yet. But, I digress.  A local short film, Patrimony, debuts this Friday at Loews Boston Common for the Boston International Film Festival, the first day of the 9 day festival.

Cataumet-based writer Donald Marcus will premiere his first short film at the Boston International Film Festival. Shot entirely on Cape Cod, Patrimony will help kick off the festival on Friday, April 15 at 6 pm at the AMC/Loews Theater on 175 Tremont in Boston.

Patrimony stars Oscar®-nominated Robert Vaughn and Tony®-nominated Melissa Errico, with local actress Sarah deLima rounding out the cast. The film focuses on a critical moment in the relationship between an elderly man and his daughter-in-law after the unexpected death of his son/her husband. The film was shot in three days on location in Pocasset, Massachusetts, and manages to weave the beauty and solitude of Cape Cod into the story. Mr. Marcus utilized many Massachusetts-based crew members, edited the film at Grey Matter Entertainment in Watertown, and did the audio mix at Mix One Studios in Boston. “I’ve had the idea for Patrimony for many years,” says Mr. Marcus, “but always saw it as a short story. Then when I moved back to Massachusetts, I realized the story could best be told as a film and that the Cape would be the ideal setting for it.” 

I just took a look at the rest of the lineup for the Festival and it looks great.

    This was my first experience with a film festival. My first impression at the saturday (4/16) was that the theatre was a total mess. We paid $12 each for tickets so you would think that they would respect that and clean up between shows.
    Also, I had heard that there was a rigorous selection process, so how did The Butterfly Ring and Director's Cut get past that process. One was horrible and the other was 105 minutes and should have been told in 20 minutes.
    However, our dinner before the show at Scollay Square restaurant on beacon St. was wonderful.
    I would need a real good reason to attend another "festival".
