The #BCIFF aims to provide a platform to promote new talents, projects and professionals in the film and entertainment industry.

The #BCIFF is building a space in which creators can present their proposals in a competition or exhibition format to those involved in the Industry, distributors and the general public.

Also the opportunity to show their work to industry investors.

The objective of this International Festival is to create positive alliances with Mexico, the United States, the rest of the World and the lovers of the 7th. Art.

We are located in Tijuana, Baja California, the most visited border in the world, and our goal with this Binational Festival is to strengthen teamwork across borders.

1. Baja California International Film Festival (BCIFF), the official International Film Festival in the Baja California Norte area, takes place in Tijuana as the main venue and with different activities from the border to Guerrero Negro, it is a forum to promote young talents who produce cinema or audiovisual projects, as well as promoting professional, cultural and commercial film productions. Likewise, it collaborates with the promotion and dissemination of cultural, economic, investment and tourist activities in the State of Baja California.

2.The films in competition and outside of it will be chosen by a selection committee, whose decision is final.

3. All productions registered in BCIFF will have the authorization of the producer to be broadcast within a period of 12 months, within the BCIFF platforms as well as their authorization to be broadcast within the programming that BCIFF has with its allies (festivals , Tv) this in order to give support to the creators to display their content, without any economic charge for the filmmakers, likewise BCIFF does not profit or charge anything for this support to the filmmakers.

We clarify that these transmissions are only with material from previous years, not from the year presented, current in which they register it, since for us it is very important to protect their works and that they have no problem in registering with other festivals and their rules.

NOTE:
THOSE WHO DO NOT AGREE WE THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR LETTING US KNOW
