The Boston Cinema Census is an annual screening event hosted at the Somerville Theater in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts. For years the BCC has provided an intimate and entertaining way for local filmmakers to present their work to a film loving audience.

In the true spirit of a census, the films presented at the BCC each year span the interests of narrative, documentary and experimental film. It is a vehicle for regional filmmakers to demonstrate their place in the local filmmaking community and an opportunity for audiences to experience current trends in local filmmaking.

Throughout its history the BCC has proven a key launching pad for New England filmmakers. Past BCC films have gone on to have very strong festival runs, moving next to festivals such as the New York Film Festival, SXSW and the Tribeca Film Festival.
