The Beloit International Film Festival means more than just ten days of great independent film. It means nine nights of live music in Downtown Beloit. It means it is Party Season.

BIFF After Dark—the B.A.D. celebration of musical talent is something for everyone with nightly drink specials, no cover charges and BIFF’s official brew, Stella Artois.
