BIAFF – British International Amateur Film Festival
Friday 16 October - Sunday 18 October
BIAFF has had to be be postponed from May. It is now planned to hold it in October 2020. However judging of the film entries has taken place and awards made.
The greatest amateur film festival in the British Isles is organised by IAC, the Film and Video Institute. IAC encourages and supports amateur film and audio-visual makers throughout the UK and overseas. One of the major ways it supports film makers is through BIAFF, the British International Amateur Film Festival.
Each year around 250 movies arrive from all round the globe for our competition.
BIAFF is most unusual in having no limit on length, subject matter, type of movie or age of film maker. In February teams of judges come together and assess all the entries. These are graded according to their quality and the very best go forward to a final jury which awards special prizes. Towards the end of March the results are announced. About two weeks after Easter the British International Amateur Film Festival is held showing a wide selection of the best entries and runners-up. The highlight of the weekend is a premier awards show screening the winning films.
