Along with quality programming, IFFBoston prides itself on treating filmmakers well. Selected feature-length filmmakers are offered transportation to and from sponsored airline cities as well as hotel accommodations. Filmmakers are provided with festival all-access passes. The festival provides a filmmaker's lounge stocked with abundant food, drink, desserts, internet access, games, press interview areas, and other treats generously sponsored by local vendors."
