Fall movies: A guide to local festivals, special screenings

The Buffalo cinema scene is thriving. That fact is clear when studying the fall calendar of film screenings and festivals. It isn’t just packed with events – it is packed with quality. This was not always the case. In fact, just a few years ago it would have been difficult to call the area’s loose collection of one-off film screenings and scattershot series a “scene.”

But things change, and thanks to some dedicated film lovers, local movie fans can rejoice. Consider: There is a festival (or two) a month for the next three months. There are specialty series specifically for horror and noir lovers. And there are rare opportunities to see acclaimed and noteworthy independent films on the big screen, with a crowd of like-minded attendees.

So grab your popcorn, and start watching.

Festival fever
