This year, Karpovsky has three films showing at the Independent Film Festival Boston.
Obviously I love my home state and Boston and the surrounding area. I grew up there, Karpovsky says. And many of my films have been set in this area. But I need a break from Boston for a while. Right now Im in Brooklyn for Girls. Who knows where to next? Its not a bad thing. Its just part of my growth.
