Whereas the Beloit International Film Festival will celebrate its seventh season of bringing great films, filmmakers, and visitors to our community, February 16-19; and

Whereas BIFF has doubled the number of film venues including new viewing opportunities in Janesville and Rockford; and

Whereas this year BIFF will focus on the Spanish speaking community with a new day-long “BIFF Latino” devoted to Latino films and culture; and

Whereas BIFF will offer for the first time, American Sign Language films for the deaf community; and

Whereas BIFF has moved up to “the next level” in the quality of everything from projection and sound to outstanding films; and

Whereas BIFF has helped introduce visitors to our community, its hotels, restaurants, businesses and people,

Therefore Beloit honors the sponsors and underwriters that contribute to the success of BIFF and declares the week of Feb.13 to be Beloit International Film Festival Week. We thank the hundreds of volunteers and encourage all citizens to enjoy these exciting opportunities to view great film and to welcome the artists and visitors who will be visiting our community.
