Circle of Friends

The Beirut International Film Festival will soon celebrate its 20th anniversary. 2017 will be a special year in BIFF history.

BIFF has evolved from just being a simple mainstream film festival to a festival with an eclectic and daring selection, giving it a special place – a niche – in the MENA region.

BIFF is today a regional launching pad for every young filmmaker that has a message to send out to the world. Many taboo subjects are now tackled by these young filmmakers, and BIFF is their conduit to the world.

For its 20th anniversary in 2017, BIFF will launch several activities throughout the year. These activities will continue to be part of the annual program, alongside of course the annual festival held in October, and will include Lebanon premieres of films not yet released and more.
