The Boulder International Film Festival offers filmmakers huge and enthusiastic audiences, superb hospitality, and countless opportunities for widespread exposure and recognition. Many films have gone from early screenings at BIFF to significant success and multiple Oscar nominations.
Visiting filmmakers at BIFF enjoy complimentary luxurious accommodations, a travel stipend for feature length filmmakers, and VIP passes to all manner of late-night galas and unforgettable parties. Of course, most people go to Colorado to ski! Filmmakers can head up to the slopes for some of the best skiing of the year, compliments of BIFF. World-class food and drink and fantastic parties every night all add up to one of the most welcoming, filmmaker-friendly festivals on the circuit.
Many of the most admired talents in Hollywood have been honored at the Festival, including award-winning actress Shirley MacLaine at BIFF 2014, and actors Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen, William H. Macy, Blythe Danner, James Franco, and director Oliver Stone, among others. More than 25,000 film enthusiasts and media professionals flow through this four-day extravaganza - no wonder MovieMaker Magazine named BIFF one of "25 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee" and one of the "25 Coolest Film Festivals" in the circuit.
BIFF's PR team galvanizes to shine the spotlight on the festival's accepted filmmakers; garnering more than 100 million media impressions throughout the festival, and proactively connecting them with both national and local journalists bringing exceptional independent storytelling to film enthusiasts around the globe. The light continues to shine during the awards competition including the prestigious Best of the Festival. Last year Keep On' Keepin On screened as a work-in-progress film and went on to win the BIFF Audience Award kicking off its festival run and picking up major awards and distribution, including an audience award at the Tribeca Film Festival.
