BIFF CARES To Examine ADHD and Veterans Issues at BIFF2018

For the past eight years, the Beloit International Film Festival has devoted a portion of each Festival to films addressing issues and concerns in the community. Under the heading BIFF CARES, the films and discussions have dealt with a wide range of topics, from Homelessness to aging to smartphone addiction.

This year, BIFF CARES, sponsored by the Beloit Health System, will present films that will examine current issues relating to families in this community that look at ADHD diagnoses in children and the concerns surrounding the lives and the care of our veterans.
