BIFF to be “Revealed” in Printed Program Feb. 7
For many, the release of the official Beloit International Film Festival printed program at a big party is what really gets the season rolling. The time has come.
BIFF will be revealed in print at 5 p.m. on Feb.7. at the Beloit Hampton Inn at 2700 Cranston Rd. The special Business After Hours party will feature the first appearance of the Beloit Daily News printed program along with hors d’oeuvres from Domenico’s Italian Ristorante and La Casa Grande, as well as beer and wine. There is a $5 Business After Hours admission fee.
The annual Reveal party offers a chance to learn about the hot films at this year’s BIFF which opens Feb. 23. In addition to the detailed schedule, the printed program, includes background on all the films and special events, from the opening night party with Tony Scodwell, to the closing Classic Film. The Reveal also provides an opportunity to speak with those who have screened a thousand submissions to find the 100 films for this year’s BIFF. Trailers for many of the films will also be shown.
The Reveal will also include the presentation of the People’s Choice Award to one of the 20 films shown this season at the Wednesday evening BIFF Year ‘Round series at the Hendricks Center at Beloit College.
The BIFF2018 program is designed by Mary Terry and is printed by the Beloit Daily News. It will be available at businesses throughout Rock County starting Feb. 8 and will be distributed in the weekend edition of the Beloit Daily News on Feb. 10.
The Reveal is made possible by the Hampton Inn, the Greater Beloit Chamber of Commerce, and Domenico’s and La Casa Grande manager Nate Lipps.
