Independent Film Festival Boston 2015 – Day 8: ‘Me And Earl And The Dying Girl’

As the 13th Annual Independent Film Festival Boston drew to a close on Wednesday, a wave of melancholy seemed to hit every viewer eagerly waiting for the closing night film, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, in a sold out theater at Coolidge Corner Theater. Brian Tamm, the fest’s Executive Director, took the stage […]
