Each year, The Beloit International Film festival selects a supporter of film, filmmakers, and the Beloit community to serve in the role of Honorary Chair of BIFF. This year, the selection is a celebration both ways, as the state’s number one promoter of cultural and natural virtues of Wisconsin returns to her home town to help celebrate 15 years of BIFF.
There is hardly a bigger fan of BIFF since its inception than Beloiter Stephanie Klett, former Wisconsin Secretary of Tourism and current president and CEO of Visit Lake Geneva. As Honorary Chair, she will be a part of all the major public events at this year’s BIFF and will host the initial “BIFFteenth” Anniversary Party on the eve of BIFF 2020, Thursday, Feb. 20th.
Klett first helped to market and promote the Beloit International Film Festival in 2006 when she was Host of Discover Wisconsin Television and Radio. She asked her co-host Rick Rose, whom she had become friends with as theater majors at Beloit College, to join in on the promotion.
