Kicking off its ninth year, the Beloit International Film Festival celebrates and showcases independent films from all around the world — 120 films from 30 countries. This includes documentaries, features and shorts. The New York Times has recently given BIFF attention, recommending the festival as one of six alternatives to Sundance Film Festival. Starting on February 14, 2014 and wrapping on February 23, local Wisconsin residents and film lovers from around the country fill more than a dozen venues, ranging in size from 40 seats to the 700 seat Eclipse Center.
“From the outreach educational programs of BIFF, which brings thousands of students together to create films and develop critical viewing skills, to the Silent Film Showcase, and more than 120 films and artists from 30 countries, we have watched BIFF grow in its international reputation,” says sponsor, Diane Hendricks. “With the addition of BIFF PLUS Music, and programs like BIFF Latino, BIFF for the Deaf, and the classic film closing party, BIFF has truly moved up another notch and I am honored to be a sponsor.”
