BIFF Young Filmmakers 

BIFF is putting its support behind the Over-the-Hill Community Development Partnership Initiative and, with the sponsors support, responding to young Bahamians’ extensive interest in social media.

“For 15 years, we have worked with over 1000 young Bahamians of varying ages to develop an interest in film making and to impart the skills involved,” says Leslie Vanderpool, BIFF’s founder and executive director.

We are proud of our partnership and will work together in creating films that showcase and focus on themes such as The Environment, Social Development and Tourism.

15th Anniversary

November 28 - December 6 

Film critic Jeffrey Lyons shares, "The Bahamas International Film Festival is a shining light among a large field of film festivals. I know. I've been attending festivals in Cannes, New York, in Breckenridge, Colorado, and elsewhere.

Bahamas has an astonishing intimacy about it. Young filmmakers, many of them talented Bahamians, get to rub shoulders with movie stars and established filmmakers; contacts they might otherwise not have. It also brings the world to the Bahamas.”

Details on events and films to be added in the coming months. Thank you for your on going support.
