The 18th Bahamas International Film Festival (BIFF) will be held to celebrate “Cinema In Paradise” May 3 - 7, 2023


We need your help to keep our torch-lit, as we plan for a destination film festival. BIFF is recognized as one of the coolest film festivals in the Caribbean and a very respected film festival globally. With that said BIFF is an event that filmmakers love to attend to engage in the networking opportunities that are afforded to the industry and audience alike.


We look forward to continuing to bring in person the brightest minds to BIFF at our intimate and invigorating film festival, however, cinema is undeniably more accessible and in the past year, as we have made a shift to incorporate today’s cinema culture virtually. Take a look at the virtual BIFF Island.


Over the years BIFF has provided international exposure to The Bahamas not only through film showcase but has hosted a broad number of celebrities who participate and engage with festival-goers.


Our list of renown celebrities that have attended an been awarded are the who’s who including Johnny Depp, Grace Jones, Debra Messing, Nicholas Cage, Daryl Hannah, Laurence Fishburne, Sir Sean Connery, Danny Glover, Alan Arkin, Michael K. Williams, Heather Graham, Roger Corman, Sydney T. Poitier, Sophie Okonedo, Anna Faris, Naomie Harris, Lenny Kravitz, Zoe Kravitz, Lee Daniels, Rae Dawn Chong, and Chaz Ebert and other BIFF Guests


Let's continue on with the legacy we recreate and celebrate Cinema In Paradise.
