As you know, the Boston Online Film Critics Association publishes a weekly round-up of our members’ reviews of major new releases to Boston-area theaters every Friday. But BOFCA’s diverse membership does more than just that: Many of us publish reviews, articles, videos and podcasts on a wide variety of other film and entertainment related subjects.
Thus, we’re instituting a new Mid-Week Roundup; where you’ll find a choice selection of the other great content BOFCA members have to offer. As this is our inaugural installment, a few selections may go back a bit – but if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s new to you. Enjoy!
