BIFF Green Initiative

This year BIFF is excited to move forward with our commitment to sustainability and improving our own green footprint. As a festival, we will implement green initiatives such as reduction of waste and paper, supporting alternative transportation, and requesting more eco-friendly products and services from our sponsors and vendors.

Be Part of our Green Commitment

We encourage you to participate in our green commitment. Here are some easy actions that you can do during the BIFF festival.

  1. Use the BIFF mobile web site for all film show times and theatre locations. We will also have the full program on large signs just outside each BIFF location, so you don’t have to pick up a paper program.
  2. Boulder Bike BusBus, Bike or Walk to BIFF: The festival is located  in Downtown Boulder. GO Boulder and the HOP are thrilled to offer FREE Bus rides during the Festival. Just show your HOP  bus driver your BIFF ticket stub or BIFF Festival pass and get a FREE ride on the HOP from February 14th – February 17th! Or try alternative means of transportation by biking, walking or carpooling to the festival.
  3. Recycle and CompostDispose of Waste Properly: We will have recycle and compost containers available on site at each of the BIFF locations. Let’s reduce our trash to the landfill and recycle and compost as much as possible.
  4. Engage in the Call 2 Action Program: Each year BIFF invites local non-profit organizations to attend the film festival that support various social and environmental causes. These organizations provide education about the issues and help translate the passion and energy from a film into concrete action.
