The 2004 Independent Film Festival of Boston is over and YOU MISSED IT!! Well, that is if you weren’t one of the 15,000 attendees during the event’s April 29 – May 2nd run. We hear that John Waters performed a 90-minute stand up act, that’s enough to make you feel like an a*s for missing the event. But there’s always next year, so plan early as this fest has grown quickly in its two year existence and year three is going to wind up being a monster.
