BIFF Classic Film 2020
The Princess Bride
The BIFF Classic Film event annually closes BIFF on a high note. Made possible—and made free– by First National Bank and Trust Company, it is always a sellout.
First National Bank customers have selected The Princess Bride as this year’s Classic Film. It will be screened at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 1 and will mark BIFF’s return to The Eclipse Event Center in Beloit.
This 1987 American fantasy adventure comedy film was directed by Rob Reiner and stars Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, Robin Wright and other favorites like Fred Savage and Andre the Giant. It tells the story of a farmhand named Westley, accompanied by companions befriended along the way, who must rescue his true love Princess Buttercup from the odious Prince Humperdinck. It is presented as a a book being read by a grandfather to his sick grandson. The film is rated PG.
First National Bank and Trust Company has been a proud sponsor of BIFF for all of the festival’s 15 years, providing important financial support and helping BIFF bring some of the best films the world has ever known to Beloit screens.
