Call2Action Call2Action Call2Action Call2Action

Filmgoers worldwide are inspired by the energy and passion that cinema evokes. The Call2Action Program creates deeper exchanges between the filmmaker, the audience, and an organization partnering with BIFF. These partners market and publicize the film to their networks and provide 5 action items that the community can take to make a difference. After selected screenings, audience members can take part in TalkBacks for extended post-film discussions. Here, the public is able to further engage with the visiting filmmakers and organizations to learn concrete ways to translate energy into action on important issues.

BIFF Call2Action Program

Filmgoers worldwide are inspired by the energy and passion that cinema evokes. The Call2Action Program provides a concrete, public platform for those who are moved by the power of film to get moving! The team at BIFF recognizes that film can educate us and raise our awareness around the most pressing local and global issues of our time. We have witnessed the ability of particularly evocative films to tug at the heartstrings. These films compel us to take immediate action and right the wrongs in our world.

The Call2Action Program creates deeper exchanges between the filmmaker, the audience, and an organization partnering with BIFF. These partners market and publicize the film to their networks and provide 5 action items that the community can take to make a difference.  After the screenings at Boulder Theater, audience members can convene in our large TalkBack tent at 14th St & Pearl St for extended post-film discussions. Here, the public is able to further engage with the visiting filmmakers and organizations to learn concrete ways to translate energy into action on important issues. For films at Boulder High and First Presbyterian Church, the TalkBacks are held within those venues.
