Quote from the producer of ROLLOUT, a World Premiere at 2023 BFF

"Since we were recognized by BFF, we have successfully signed on with a distribution partner, New Day, a non-profit social impact film distributor. Thanks so much for your consideration, we're so grateful for the support and platform BFF has continued to provide for films like ours!"


The theme of the 27th BFF (2024) edition is IMMERSION...

"The 2024 theme was meant to reveal the festival intention, and the desire of our selected filmmakers, to tell stories in a vertical fashion. Stories that dive way beyond their own surface to force the audience to consider not only the obvious outcomes and meanings, but also the hidden and secretive ones". mu.
