“Halfway to BIFF” To Be Part of Beloit’s Biggest Weekend. It’s been a strange year, so why not present BIFF in August? The Beloit International Film Festival is a year-round effort and August is about halfway to the BIFF 10-day winter festival. Sounds like a good excuse for a celebration.

In case you haven’t noticed…WOW, what a year this has been…and what an interesting and successful Beloit International Film Festival we have just completed.

Most critically, we broke even and secured our future.
