BIFF has shown over one thousand (1000) films in 17 years from more than 150 countries and hosted hundreds of international guests, including A-list stars.

 

MovieMaker Magazine describes BIFF as one of the 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World in 2015 and 2018. BIFF has premiered the finest of international cinema, discovered innovative and inspiring works from first-time filmmakers and notable masters, and previewed many Golden Globe and Academy Award season contenders, such as CAROL, THE IMITATION GAME, THE QUARTET, THE KINGS SPEECH, JUNO, PRECIOUS, MUDBOUND, CAPERNAUM, ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI and many more.

 

Along with the array of international films BIFF puts together a well-rounded slate of Bahamian Films. BIFF affords the Bahamian community an opportunity to experience watching films of their own and the opportunity for Bahamian filmmakers to be seen by the who’s who of the industry.
