Welcome to the home of the BIFF
The BIFF brings together a collective of filmmakers to explore the art of film from a varied range of. backgrounds, filmographies and genres.
Convenience Gallery run the BIFF alongside independent festival producers and curators Ben Loveland and David Harrison to help continue to bring independent and international film and filmmakers to new audiences in Birkenhead. Whilst also providing a platform to filmmakers across the globe to showcase work.
For the fourth year of BIFF we are also looking to implement a space for one of the film blocks to be focussed on Northern UK based filmmakers. There is a significantly lower percentage of opportunities for northern filmmakers in the UK and we want to ensure the festival provides an opportunity for makers living and working in the north of the UK. Whilst still championing and celebrating films from across the world.
We are also as a team excited as ever to showcase filmmakers from across the globe. With previous selection at festivals coming from 32 different countries and The BIFF Audience choice award having gone to filmmakers from Mexico, France, Cyprus, and United Kingdom. 92 filmmakers have showcased their work with us so far and previous filmmakers have gone on to showcase work as prestigious festivals globally too.
Each year we have also had a partnership with Scenegraph Studios, who have brought new technology and digital media to the festival. Creating AI bot generated films from audience prompts and showcase VR films during the festival.
2023 will be our most ambitious festival yet and we can wait to build the programme as ever with you. We dream of a world full of filmmakers and thank you for taking the time to apply for this years festival.
