Each year, in the days leading up to our festival, we host our Filmmakers Summit to the benefit of the filmmakers who attend the BIFF. The 2020 Filmmaker Summit will take place on Wednesday, September 9 and Thursday, September 10. Details will be announced in August.
Generously sponsored by Berkshire Bank, The Next Great Filmmaker Award presents a cash prize of $2500 to the winning filmmakers. BIFF and the Berkshire Bank created this award in 2010 to support the work of independent filmmakers around the world.
