Not sure why Tisha B'av has turned into Jewish Film Festival Day but..

Are you really asking? The Litvaks can take full credit for starting this new custom in the frum world.

Not condemning, just reporting the history.

Why are you making a puzzled face? He wanted to know how it started that people think that Tisha b'Av is (semi) kosher film festival day. You want to say that Satmar started it?

The Biur Halacha says regarding the minhag of watching movies on TB, that it doesn't necessarily have to be a sad movie, as long as it's not a rom-com.

FYI The whole minhag was actually started by Seret Viznitz. Before you blame the litvaks do your research!
