Boston Film Festival lineup announced

The Boston Film Festival, which kicks off Sept. 17, announced its slate of movies Thursday, and it includes a documentary that is likely to generate interest. Called “We the People: The Market Basket Effect,” the doc narrated by Michael Chiklis (inset) tells the tale of what happened a year ago when the board of directors of the Tewksbury-based supermarket chain voted to fire CEO and part-owner
Arthur T. Demoulas. Let’s just say that wasn’t the end of the story. (Another local film screening at the festival is “Aside From That: A Film About Everyone’s Least Favorite Topic,” a meditation on mortality featuring philosophers, academics, and the great Boston comic Stephen Wright.) Among those expected to attend are actors Shaun Toub, Adrian Sparks, Annika Noelle, Robyn Coffin, Robert Cannon, James Molinari, and Justin Lee.
