On the heels of a successful 2017 event, BFF Opens the Call for Entries for the 2018 festival being held September 20-23, 2018.

The 2017 Festival started with the Opening Night film, Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, an exceptional doc that played to a packed and enthusiastic audience. Bombshell was rated 100% on the fresh tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes.

BFF was rated top 100 festivals by Filmfreeway users. Here's what FF had to say: "According to reviews from real FilmFreeway users, your festival ranks in the top 2% of more than 4,700 film festivals and creative contests around the world. No doubt, this ranking is a testament to the countless hours of hard work and care that you and your staff have devoted to creating such a wonderful event."
Who wouldn't want to be in this gorgeous mountain town in September when the leaves turn brilliant shades during the best time of the year in Summit County, in the town that earned the No. 1 spot in 2017's Arts Vibrancy Index for Small Cities by SMU  National Center for Arts Research?

Breckenridge was also named the best small town in Colorado by Country Living Magazine in 2017.

Films will be accepted in traditional categories, including Comedy, Drama, Short Comedy, Short Drama, Documentary, Adventure and Spiritual or what we like to call "Films of the Human Spirit". Also included are the ever-popular Adventure films and Animation to the line-up of genres. 

Films have historically been submitted by local as well as global filmmakers, making the Breckenridge Film Festival an international event. Attending filmmakers never fail to give the festival accolades for being filmmaker-friendly, enjoying daily social events and a thriving hospitality suite dedicated to making the filmmaker's festival experience unique and valuable.

Submission fees are at their lowest in the early-bird submission period, (we have discounted student rate as well) which ends Feb 2, 2018.  Local, regional, national and international filmmakers are encouraged to submit amateur and professional films alike. The festival is particularly interested in receiving locally produced adventure films.

Filmmakers whose films are selected are offered a chance to visit Breckenridge during the festival to present the film to intimate audiences, enjoy Breckenridge Film Festival hospitality (including lodging) and mingle with fellow filmmakers as well as a film-loving audience.
