Extended Deadline October 20

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. 


Located at the foot of the stunning Rocky Mountains, easy-going Boulder Colorado is a traditional magnet for the tech-savvy, music & film-loving outdoors-person who also likes to party. Along with a major University film school, we have hundreds of miles of running, skiing and hiking trails, world-class restaurants, hotels, galleries, shops and bars, all surrounded by a scenic 46,000-acre moat of Boulder Open Space. The population of the Boulder Metro area is 300,000 and Boulder is just 45 minutes from the Denver International Airport.  Boulder was voted “Happiest Town in America” in a Gallup poll, “Smartest Town in  the U.S” by Forbes Magazine, “Place you Dream of Living” by Backpacker Magazine,  "The Worst-dressed City That Looks Best Naked", by GQ Magazine ,"The Foodiest Town in America" by Bon Appetit, and  “#1: Best Place to Live by Men’s Journal. 

Submit your work to BIFF today, and explore all that Colorado has to offer!

A filmmaker’s festival

The Boulder International Film Festival will be accepting submissions starting June 27th. BIFF 2015 is March 5 – 8.

The Boulder International Film Festival offers filmmakers superb hospitality, excellent exposure opportunities and huge, enthusiastic audiences, all combining to create an incredible festival experience. Filmmakers enjoy luxurious upscale accommodations close to the Festival’s main venue, a travel stipend (for feature length films only), and an exclusive Red Carpet VIP pass to the galas and legendary parties, where plenty of interaction with Oscar-winning celebrities and directors is the norm. Of course, most people come to Colorado in March to ski (it’s our best month!). Filmmakers can head up to the slopes for the best skiing of the year, and will receive a free lift ticket and ski rental at our favorite ski resort a short drive from Boulder. 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.

Boulder Theater MarquisThe Festival attracts more than 25,000 film enthusiasts, media and industry each year and has been proud to host and celebrate some of film’s most talented artists, including 2013 Kennedy Center honoree Shirley MacLaine at BIFF 2014, Oscar-nominated actors Alec Baldwin, James Franco, Martin Sheen, Oliver Stone, William H. Macy, Peter Fonda, Emmy-nominated actress Blythe Danner, legendary comedian Chevy Chase, and Golden-Globe nominated actress Maria Bello, along with many other independent filmmakers and special guests including directors Lawrence Kasdan (The Big Chill), Anthony Bregman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Michael and Mark Polish (Northfork), Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree Congressman John Lewis (Freedom Riders), and writer John August (Big Fish), among many others.

I am about to direct my first feature film, and it all began at the Boulder International Film Festival 2014. I went there with my short film, Lunch Date, which I wrote and directed. I met the Investor and Executive Producer for my upcoming feature film at my screening, and from there, the course of my life changed! We begin shooting in London, summer 2014. It’s a wonderful festival which celebrates independent filmmakers, and where truly amazing things happen!
