The Affleck brothers have a lot to be excited for this week, as Casey Affleck has joined the Independent Film Festival Boston (IFFBoston) as Creative Advisor, the festival recently announced. Affleck will be making an annual appearance at the festival starting with this year’s iteration, which kicks off April 24.
Affleck’s role will include offering programming input, reaching out to studios, filmmakers and talent, connecting the festival with local charities, and advising on its growth into, what he said, “a world-class film festival.” In the release Affleck also mentioned his goals to integrate the 100% volunteer-run festival “year-round into the Greater Boston arts community,” as well as into schools and neighborhoods
