The Birmingham Black International Film Festival (BIF Festival) is a Film Festival with a difference, incorporating music, live arts and education while providing platforms for filmmakers and art creatives to exhibit their talents. The festival, is a one week infusion of industry parties, showcases, networking events, educational seminars and screenings as well as the star studded “MViSAs” Movie Video and Screen Awards. This Festival is unique as it is the only event of its kind in the UK.
Each year we make every effort to keep the festival as exciting and interesting as possible. Apart from screening some of the best independent films we host a number of other events which include networking evenings, workshops, seminars and showcases. Last year we engaged with the Rudolph Walker foundation to extend his inter-school drama programme into Birmingham, which will start this year. We will be relaunching our Film and Entertainment Seminar (FES) which will include individuals from the Film, Music and Entertainment industry. There will be the usual core events such as the MViSA Awards and premiere evenings. Please see our events page for full listing
