Garen Daly has been in the Boston film scene for over 35 years. His career started as a cinema manager which morphed into an operator for several of Boston’s better known art houses. He revived such places as the Somerville Theatre and the Dedham Community Theatre. He is an award winning programmer and consultant who continues to produce the Boston Science Fiction Film Festival, the oldest genre festival in the country.

Currently he sits on the Filmmaker’s Collaborative board of directors.
