Oscar fever? Quench your thirst at BIFF

Mohamed Fellag in the title role of Philippe Falardeau's Oscar-nominated "Monsieur Lazhar," part of BIFF 2012.
A tribute to the good taste of our BIFF programmers is the fact that so many of our past selections have wound up as Oscar nominees. This year is no different, and you can see no less than FIVE of them! If you are an Academy Award oddsmaker and/or obsessive completist (like us), you should pick up tix right away.
