WTVO/WQRF Partner on Media Sponsorship
BELOIT, WI – BIFF is thrilled to announce their new media sponsor WTVO 17/WQRF 39 Television. “We are delighted to have WTVO/WQRF on board as a new sponsor,” said Greg Gerard, BIFF Executive Director. “This multi-station partnership is such a great fit for our festival. We are celebrating our 15 th year, and the live-remote broadcasts, in-station interviews, and ticket-giveaway promotion will assist us in getting the word out about this fabulous international festival,” he continued.
BIFF is a ten-day tribute to the power of film and the excitement of independent film from around the world. This year’s event is scheduled for February 21, to March 1, 2020. Local residents and visitors from across the nation fill venues, ranging in size from 40 to 400 seats for more than 100 films, and to meet scores of filmmakers who come from throughout the U.S. and as far away as Europe, Asia and Latin America. Five of the venues are located downtown Beloit and within easy walking distance between each. BIFF celebrates filmmakers in all genres—features, documentaries, shorts— who enjoy the Beloit setting as much as the attendees do. BIFF promises crowds of interested viewers filling venues, questioning them at the films, and stopping them on the street to talk about their shared passions and projects in independent filmmaking. Tickets are $10 each and $5 for students. For info or to purchase visit: https://beloitfilmfest.org/biff-2020-film-event-schedule/.
