BIFF is back!

A bold new approach to the 27th festival sees excellence in programming combined with unforgettable events and a renewed focus on industry and education.

By bringing conversation to the fore, BIFF 2021 will highlight the greatest new strokes in international cinema alongside a celebration of the movie experience and our local creatives.

For 11 days in October, Brisbane will welcome filmmakers and audiences from all over Australia for a festival that invokes all the best parts of our subtropical city for the state’s biggest and most fantastic film event.

BIFF will be open for submissions in two categories – feature and short film – on Thursday 24 June 2021, with submissions closing at midnight on Friday 30 July 2021. All submissions via FilmFreeway.
