Beginning our 3rd year, BIFF recognizes that local artists in the Bedford region have wanted a venue to showcase their work for many years. Finally, in 2019, after much collaboration and behind the scenes planning, the first Bedford International Film Festival was presented.
The Bedford Film Festival is a one-day event where attendees will have the opportunity to be the first to view films from around the world alongside films shot in your backyard (sometimes literally).

As we gear up for our inaugural event, taking place in Bedford, Virginia, in July of this year, please do submit your independent or student film projects for consideration at the film festival.
