Call For Entries - 2018 BIFF

Most respected and exciting
film festival in the Caribbean

“Top 25 Coolest Film Festival in the World” by MovieMaker Magazine 

"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.” shares film critic Jeffrey Lyons
