Dear BIFF Friends,

We have made the very difficult decision to move BIFF to the weekend after Labor Day. The new dates are September 10, 11, 12 and 13, 2020. Like our peer Berkshire organizations, our aim is to ensure the health and well-being of our community, visitors, volunteers and staff during this unprecedented time.

We are incredibly grateful to our festival partners for their willingness to swiftly work with us to postpone and will continue to host the BIFF in September this year.  We are also very grateful to you, our devoted patrons, for your understanding and ongoing support during this difficult time.

We look forward to celebrating our 15th anniversary festival with you this Fall. We still plan to screen films at the Triplex Cinema, the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center, the Phoenix Theatre’s Beacon Cinema, and the Tanglewood Learning Institute. As always, our festival schedule will continue to include our popular Opening Nights, Tribute Night, Closing Night and Tea Talk events with filmmakers.

We look forward to communicating with you during the coming months, and especially to welcoming everyone back to the BIFF, our beloved community film festival.

Wishing you and your families the best of health in the months ahead.
