Former Somervillian filmmaker Drew Tobia

BUFF shouldn’t just stand for the Boston Underground Film Festival. It should also be an acronym for bizarre, unconventional, fearless, and filterless because those are the types of films the festival delivers, which started yesterday and ends on Monday, March 31. It all started as an overnight movie-marathon in ‘98. Now, celebrating 15 years, it’s […]
