It’s Back! After two years the Beloit International Film Festival (BIFF) is back in person for it’s 17th season. This year the event will take place from February 25th to March 6th in downtown Beloit.
BIFF is a ten-day tribute to the power of film and the excitement of independent films from around the world. BIFF celebrates filmmakers in all genres – features, documentaries, narrative, shorts. The annual festival is the region’s major international cultural event. Some films will be available online to be screened virtually, but the majority of this year’s rotation will be screened in-person across various city venues. This year the “Walkable Film Festival” has added some special new locations. For a list of all location, films, times, workshops, and events please visit: beloitfilmfest.org
This year’s popular sing a long event will feature The Monkees’ Daydream Believers: The Monkees Story on Feb 26th and the classic film showcase will be the Steven Spielberg family film E.T. on March 6th. If you are in driving distance from Beloit, you can also check out the pre festival event, BIFF’s FestEve party. Which will take place from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm on Feb. 24 at Irontek.
