BIFF's blog


The Boulder International Film Festival (BIFF) is a four-day celebration of cinema that attracts over 25,000 film enthusiasts, media, and industry each year. With exciting networking events, A-list filmmaker and celebrity attendees, countless opportunities for widespread exposure, and some of the best films and filmmakers working today, it's clear why BIFF was named one of Moviemaker Magazine's "25 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee" and "25 Coolest Film Festivals

Filmmakers enjoy luxurious accommodations, an exclusive Red Carpet VIP Pass, a travel stipend (for feature length films), and a gift card for a local marijuana dispensary. Competition awards include the prestigious “Best of the Festival” and the “Audience Award”. BIFF receives 100 million media impressions and the Fest PR firm works diligently to shine the spotlight on individual filmmakers. Of course, most people come to Colorado to ski! Filmmakers can head up to the slopes for some of the best skiing of the year, complements 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.

BIFF attracts over 20,000 film enthusiasts, media, and industry each year, and has been proud to host and celebrate some of film's most talented artists, including Shirley MacLaine in 2014, Peter Fonda in 2013, William H. Macy and Martin Sheen at BIFF 2012, Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone and Oscar-nominated actor James Franco at BIFF 2011, Oscar-nominated actor Alec Baldwin and Emmy Award-winning actress Blythe Danner at BIFF 2010. along with many other independent filmmakers, directors, producers and stars 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, legendary comedian Chevy Chase, Golden Globe-nominated actress Maria Bello, writer John August (Big Fish), Academy-Award nominee Eric Roberts, Patrick Warburton [Seinfeld]), and writer/filmmaker Chris Gore (The Ultimate Film Festival Survival Guide and Film Threat).

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!
