Once again, I'd appreciate it if you could forward thi
s email to anyone else
who might be interested in this information. And here's a link to the Facebook group for the film.
At the end of June, beginning of July, Lonely Man of Faith had a very successful run at the Museum of Fine Arts, in Boston, as part of
the Boston Jewish Film Festival Encore Serie
s. The film screened three times, and both the theater and the festival were very pleased with the turnout. So there's a decent chance that the film will return to the city, once again! I participated in a long Q/A session after the Sunday screening, and I had a great discussion with crowd that lasted around an hour! Thanks to everyone who attended and to those who helped promote the film.
