Hemal Trivedi, director, producer and editor of the award-winning feature length film, Among the Believers, is Honorary Chair for BIFF 2016. She will discuss her film and will help to welcome the international array of guests and filmmakers to this year’s BIFF.
This year BIFF will offer two films, shown together in the same slot, that illustrate the capacity of individuals, without the use of normal appendages, to achieve great things through perseverance.
BIFF is searching for 300-400 volunteers to help with all aspects of the festival. Karen McKee, BMO Harris branch manager and BIFF board member, is chairing the volunteer effort for BIFF2016.
Beloit, Wis. -- The BIFF Silent Film Showcase sponsored by BMO Harris Bank has been the centerpiece of the Beloit International Film Festival since its inception, and this year’s production will be a “Wiz of a Wiz” according to Rock River Philharmonic Music Director Robert Tomaro.
Now that the holidays are in the rear view mirror, it is time to start thinking about the fun that awaits us in 2016.
As a token of our gratitude for your hard work during the festival, BIFF will be hosting a Volunteer Appreciation Day of Film!
