The critically acclaimed Boulder International Film Festival (BIFF) has gained a reputation as one of the most influential and innovative film festivals in the U.S., and features work from new, emerging, and A-list filmmakers and 25,000 attendees. The Festival will be celebrating its 20th year February 29 – March 3, 2024.
The BIFF Program Advisory Board often includes voting members of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences® who assist with programming and attend the Festival annually. BIFF is one of only a handful of festivals (including Cannes) where Oscar-analyst Scott Feinberg from The Hollywood Reporter records his celebrated Awards Chatter podcast that
features the most interesting and accomplished people in the industry. Other major industry reps who have attended the Festival include big-leaguers like DreamWorks, 20th Century Fox, A E IndieFilms, IFC, Lionsgate, and worldwide film sales company Submarine Entertainment.
BIFF has been proud to honor some of the world’s most admired and award-winning talents, including actor F. Murray Abraham, Javier Bardem, Jesse Eisenberg, Emilio Estevez, James Franco, Shirley MacLaine, Martin Sheen,
William H. Macy, Blythe Danner, Alan Arkin, Bruce Dern, Maria Bello, Peter Fonda, and director Oliver Stone, along with many special guests including Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree Congressman John Lewis, legendary musician David Crosby, and Robbie Robertson of “The Band”.
