Pix, shorts set for Boston fest

'Rounders,' 'Digging' among entries

BOSTON — Nearly four dozen features and 27 shorts are on the schedule for the 14th edition of the Boston Film Festival.

Event has been cut back from two weeks to 10 days, according to fest topper Mark Diamond, since box office usually dropped off after the second weekend. This year’s event unspools Sept. 10-20.

Opening night features include “Rounders,” starring local boy Matt Damon; “Monument Avenue” (formerly “Snitch”), Ted Demme’s Boston crime drama toplining Denis Leary; “With Friends Like This” with Adam Arkin; and “Digging to China,” starring Kevin Bacon and directed by Timothy Hutton.

Diamond announced that this year the festival would contribute a $2,500 prize to the annual screenwriting competition held by the Massachusetts Film Office.

This year’s selections were culled from more than 200 entries, including 125 feature films.
