BIFF Returns for its 19th Season: APRIL 5-14, 2024

BIFF 2024 — The Beloit International Film Festival (BIFF)—is an annual ten-day film festival that celebrates the power of independent film from around the globe. Local residents and visitors from across the nation experience the diversity of international film each year. Venues, ranging in size from 40 to 400 seats, showcase 100 incredible films. In addition, festival attendees meet scores of filmmakers from all around the U.S. and the entire world!

“This will, without a doubt, be the most interesting and energetic BIFF we’ve seen in many years,” notes BIFF Executive Director Greg Gerard. “With the addition of several new special events and our growing partnerships with Beloit College and Geronimo Hospitality, not to mention a couple of exciting appearances by our most dynamic local personality, Diane Hendricks, BIFF 2024 promises to take a big step up, and forward, as we make our springtime festival debut. With all this amazing entertainment value in play, I expect our beautiful downtown to be teeming with filmgoers, filmmakers, and visitors from near and far for ten fabulous days and nights!”

All presentations are in-person at popular downtown venues, as well as at some brand new and newly renovated screening rooms. Favorite events, including the BIFF Sing Along and the First National Bank Classic Film Showcase, will be back.

BIFF 2024 venues will include favorite viewing sites like Bagels & More, the Hendricks Center for the Arts, and the Downtown Beloit Association. Other screening sites will include La Casa Grande, Visit Beloit, The Castle at 501 Prospect Ave., and the exciting Weissberg Auditorium in the Powerhouse at Beloit College. The Beloit College CELEB building at 437 E. Grand Ave. in Beloit will, once again, serve as the official BIFF Box Office throughout the ten days of BIFF 2024.

The complete Beloit Daily News printed program was revealed on March 14 at the annual Reveal Party at the Hampton Inn in Beloit.

For those who cannot wait to find a program, the complete schedule is posted on the website where tickets are on sale, as well. BIFF tickets are $10 for each film.

BIFF’s History

BIFF Beloit

BIFF’s history dates back to 2005. Founders of ABC Supply Company, Diane Hendricks and her late husband, Ken, inspired the creation of BIFF. After that, they also encouraged community support for the program. Diane continues to support the mission of BIFF–to harness the power of film and to improve community and ourselves.
