The world of non-commercial film and A-V

 

BIAFF

Our international festival of film

Our Competition is open for four months from October to end January. We accept non-commercial films of any length or genre.
All the entries are watched by a team of judges who rank them on a star system and write comments for the filmmakers.
In the Spring (usually April) we celebrate with a Festival where we screen many of the entries and present awards to the top films.
