About BIFF CARES



This outreach and educational concept was developed by the Beloit International Film Festival several years ago to promote and present films dealing with significant issues touching us as a community and as individuals.

“Life-changing” and “inspiring” are words that have been used to describe BIFF’s annual tribute to the human spirit. Encouraging change through the BIFF CARES series is BIFF’s way of recognizing the influence that film can have to move us.

Films, engaged filmmakers and local experts have dealt with topics ranging from teen homelessness and child abuse to end of life issues. One of the festival’s most successful programs, BIFF CARES films are presented multiple times in different venues, reaching thousands in the process.



This year’s BIFF CARES program will include a variety of films with a focus on mental health challenges and issues, from childhood to mature years. Films will examine the developmental repercussions of homelessness and the vulnerability of adolescents’ mental health created by electronic devices, to issues relating to post traumatic stress disorder, and one man’s effort to buoy the spirits of a sick child far from home.

Wisconsin Illinois Showdown – 2017

The annual Showdown, offers an opportunity for film fans to discover the Lucas or Scorcese of the future. Films include features, documentaries and shorts. Most of the films are from the Milwaukee and Chicago areas but there is always outstanding representation from other communities. And audiences get a chance to who their support by voting.

The
Wisconsin – Illinois
Showdown


Filmmakers from both states compete for Audience Choice awards!

BIFF 2017 will celebrate it’s forth annual Wisconsin – Illinois Showdown featuring filmmakers from across both states during the first weekend of BIFF with three days of films in-competition.

Filmmaking isn’t just for Hollywood anymore. For twelve years now, the Beloit International Film Festival has shown our community the power of independent and internationally made films. Many of these films in the past have come from communities just a drive away from our own, dazzling us with Hollywood-quality productions and unique regional flavor. BIFF felt it needed to expand this trend into a full-on weekend showcasing the great caliber of work made on the Third Coast!

When audiences walk into each Wisconsin-Illinois Showdown screening, they are given ballots to vote on what they believe are the best films, eventually awarding filmmakers much-deserved recognition.

The First National Bank Classic Film



One of the most popular events of the Beloit International Film Festival in recent years comes at the very end. There is good reason.

The First National Bank and Trust Company Classic Film is the final official event on the ten-day BIFF schedule and it is offered free.

In addition, the community gets to select the film they want to see once again on the big screen from among the great films of all times.

This year, the community chose “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner” as the most popular among available films surveyed, beating out other cinematic classics including Citizen Kane, Bridge On The River Kwai, and Bonnie & Clyde.


Guess Who's Coming To Dinner

Poitier, Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn in a simultaneously humorous and sobering tale of racial climate change in the US during the 1960s. As poignant and relevant now as it was back then, it portrays a time in American history when inter-racial marriages were still illegal in many states.

In recent years this closing event of BIFF has drawn overflow crowds, presenting films such as To Kill a Mockingbird, Braveheart, and last year’s The Maltese Falcon.



The Film’s Significance


Roger Ebert Reviews
Yes, there are serious faults in Stanley Kramer’s “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” but they are overcome by the virtues of this delightfully old-fashioned film. It would be easy to tear the plot to shreds and catch Kramer in the act of copping out. But why? On its own terms, this film is a joy to see, an evening of superb entertainment.

Entertainment, I think, is the key word here. Kramer has taken a controversial subject (interracial marriage) and insulated it with every trick in the Hollywood bag. There are glamorous star performances by Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy made more poignant by his death. There is shameless schmaltz (the title song, so help me, advises folks to give a little, take a little, let your poor heart break a little, etc.). The minor roles are filled with crashing stereotypes, like a Negro maid who must be Rochester’s sister and an Irish monsignor with a brogue so fey and eyes so twinkling he makes Bing Crosby look like a Protestant.

And there is the plot, borrowed from countless other drawing room comedies about “ineligible” suitors. Only this time the controversial suitor is not a socialist (“Man and Superman”), a newspaper reporter (“The Philadelphia Story”) or even a spinster (“Cactus Flower”) — but a Negro.

BIFF Sing-A-Long

Brennan Steil S.C. Attorneys


Beatlemania is coming to Beloit, Wisconsin


It is the best rock & roll comedy adventure, and probably the greatest historic sing along film of all time. And now, the Beloit International Film Festival invites you to dig out the Beatles wigs and relive the era.

This year’s BIFF Sing-A-Long film will be the classic Beatles 1964 hit A Hard Day’s Night, featuring more than a dozen early songs by the boys from Liverpool. Directed by Richard Lester, it captures the Beatles at their beginning, and London before it really learned to swing. The Beatles drew massive enthusiastic crowds, but they had not yet set the heavens ablaze.

The Sing-A-Long event is sponsored by the law firm of Brennan Steil, S.C of Janesville, WI.

The film will be presented on Saturday February 25th, 7 p.m. at Schubert’s Luxury 10 Cinema on Cranston Rd. in Beloit. Prior to the screening there will be costume and singing competitions with prizes awarded. Popcorn and soda will be provided, compliments of Luxury 10.

And don’t worry if you have forgotten some of the words to All My Loving and I Wanna Be Your Man. The words will be shown at the bottom of the movie screen. Girls will be encouraged to scream at random.

A Hard Day's Night Poster

We know how to behave! We’ve had lessons

A Hard Day’s Night, is a frenetic cinéma vérité romp with the Beatles as they travel from Liverpool to London. Director Richard Lester is one of the most influential directors of the 1960s, and continued his career into the early ’80s with such films as The  Knack…and How to Get It and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. His style in A Hard Day’s Night and Help!was seen by many as inspiring the music video.

Tickets for the BIFF Sing-A-Long are $10 plus a purchase fee.

The Beloit International Film Festival, celebrating its 12th year, is sponsored by the Hendricks Group in association with Beloit College and with additional support provided by Visit Beloit. Support for the Festival comes from area businesses and civic organizations, and individual support for BIFF is provided through membership in the BIFF Founders and the Film Society of Beloit.
