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

The 2024 theme reveals 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.
