The Buffalo International Film Festival

WNY's Premiere Celebration of the Moving Image

In its tenth year, BIFF champions local, national, and international films that test the limits of independent cinema. BIFF presents WNY residents and visitors with juried films of diverse perspectives from around the world. A proud supporter of local filmmaking, BIFF offers workshops, seminar, industry panel discussions and fiscal sponsorship opportunities on a year-round basis.

As Buffalo continues to be a place for artists to grow and thrive, those behind the curtains of BIFF clearly intend to remain a vibrant part of the process, year in and year out.
