BIAFF – British International Amateur Film Festival
Friday 16 October - Sunday 18 October
BIAFF was postponed from May but is now planned to be held on-line using Zoom from 16th to 18th October and is free. Judging of the film entries has already taken place and awards made, so this is just a chance to see all the films.
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. The highlight of the weekend is a premier awards show screening the winning films.
