In Memory of Brian Murphy

We at the Brattle were devastated to learn of the passing last week of our friend, Brian Murphy. A Brattle Film Foundation board member since 2012, Brian has been a dedicated member of the Brattle community for far longer than that, and his presence in our midst will be sorely missed.

Beyond his involvement in the Brattle, Brian was a committed public servant, a former Cambridge City Councilor, the current Assistant Manager for Community Development for the City of Cambridge, and, above all else, a dedicated father and husband. His passion, compassion, and great humor will be remembered far and wide.

One of our great pleasures in knowing Brian was seeing the excitement that he felt bringing his own children here to watch our annual Bugs Bunny film festival. So, in dedication to him, and in support of his wonderful family, we dedicate this year’s 20th annual festival to his memory.
