a filmmaker’s festival

Quite simply, The Boulder International Film Festival offers independent filmmakers superb hospitality, excellent exposure opportunities and huge, enthusiastic audiences, all combining to create a unique festival experience, Boulder-style. Filmmakers enjoy luxurious accommodations just a few blocks from the Festival's main venue - the historic 900-seat Boulder Theater - and receive a VIP pass to the galas and legendary parties, where plenty of elbow-rubbing with producers, directors, and critics is the norm. Great food and drink, skiing just 45 minutes from Boulder, and fantastic parties every night all add up to one of the most welcoming, filmmaker-friendly festivals on the circuit.

The Festival attracts more than 20,000 film enthusiasts, and media and industry figures each year, and has been proud to host and celebrate some of film's most talented artists, including Award-winning actors Martin Sheen and William H. Macy and Directors Lawrence Kasdan and Anthony Bregman at BIFF 2012, Oliver Stone and James Franco at BIFF 2011, Alec Baldwin and Blythe Danner at BIFF 2010, and Chevy Chase, Maria Bello, and many other film artists, directors, writers and producers. BIFF 2013 is February 14-17, President’s Day Weekend in Boulder, Colorado. Submit today, you’ll love it here…

Chris Gore points to BIFF

Chris Gore

The author of The Ultimate Film Festival Survival Guide and the founder of Film Threat, says “Boulder as a vacation destination already puts BIFF on the map. And the staff’s dedication to championing true indies, the amazing hospitality along with a classic theater (with a full bar that serves drinks during the screenings) make this a festival that should be on the top of every filmmaker’s list.”
