Berlin - Germany
February 14 to 20, 2018

In the Spotlight today is the 9th Annual Berlin Independent Film Festival(BIFF), showcasing a broad spectrum of emerging talents while celebrating the gritty and glorious thrills of independent screenwriting and filmmaking. BIFF not only understands and appreciates the challenges faced by independent filmmakers, it works to position their wares effectively in a complex and daunting global marketplace. At BIFF, filmmakers don't need big budgets and savvy PR knowledge -- they just need great material.

As a key gathering point for the international film industry, BIFF shines a bright and powerful spotlight on new talents, creative discovery, and innovative filmmaking. Throughout its 11-day run, the festival bursts with exciting networking opportunities with agents, distributors, and other experts primed to accelerate creative careers. Visitors are encouraged to take advantage not only of the festival's countless offerings, but also of the robust artistic community that keeps Berlin buzzing.

Screenplays, short films, and feature-length narratives are embraced with equal enthusiasm at BIFF. There's even a competitive category exclusive to female filmmakers, striving to give talented women a leg up in an all-too-male dominated industry. Micro-budget, low-budget, and no-budget filmmaking make up the three-sided centerpiece. BIFF keeps its focus squarely where it belongs: great stories and the people who craft them.

The Berlin Independent Film Festival is at the epicentre for low-budget filmmaking in Europe

While the Berlin Independent Film Festival is not connected with the Berlin Film Festival (Berlinale), BIFF runs at the same time, and not far from the European Film Market and draws on all the film industry power gathered in Berlin for those events.

Submit your best film or screenplay today, and join in on the excitement!
