Sun Sand Sea Cinema & Celebrities


BIFF will offer a vibrant online interactive space, powered by cutting edge internet platform Filmocracy.  You will experience all the excitement and buzz of the festival while in the comfort of your home.

BIFF is proud to embrace the new technology and aims to provide the magical, island touch, creating an environment for viewing films, panel discussions, tributes, and industry networking. Film festivals around the world are adapting positively to the pandemic by combining small-scale physical screenings with large-scale, world-wide reach by streaming online and for the foreseeable future, the hybrid format seems likely to be here to stay.

The online BIFF virtual experience will be hosted on the Bahamas International Film Festival website. Once tickets or passes are on sale, ticket and pass holders will enter into the magic of the virtual platform.

Streaming will not take away the quality of curation that we will showcase this year. 

BIFF presents world premieres and all films shown at BIFF are Bahamian premieres. There are four competition categories; Spirit of Freedom: Narrative & Documentary; New Visions; and Short Film. Special sections include World Cinema as well as Gala Screenings.
