The Berkshire International Film Festival will take place September 9 – 13, 2021, with an added day to the normally weekend-long event.

“As an organization, we feel optimistic that by September, as the vaccination process will be expanded and far spread, and with all necessary safety precautions including an extra day to spread out the festivities, an in-person event will likely be possible. We are incredibly excited to announce these new dates, in the hopes we can all gather safely together,” said Berkshire International Film Festival artistic director Kelley Vickery. “We of course will continue to follow the experts and science and continue to evaluate the pandemic in relation to health, travel, and live events, but in the meantime at BIFF central, we are busy planning, programming and organizing for a hybrid festival including in-person screenings, drive-ins and virtual screenings and events.” More information, venues, screenings and event details to follow.
