Prominent review backs BIFF

The Bermuda International Film Festival (BIFF) received some international attention this week on a major film site.

American journalist John Anderson, who visited the Island on his way to the TriBeCa Film Festival in New York next week, wrote about the BIFF on Indiewire.com yesterday.

The post compares the festival to the New York Film Festival, saying: “Relatively speaking, if the New York Film Festival were the Bermuda International Film Festival, about two million people would be crowding into Lincoln Center every autumn.”

He also said both events feature a similar “combination of curatorial flair and all-star-game philosophy”.

Mr Anderson also highlighted one of the short films being shown at the festival, ‘Victoria Meets’, which he said could be expanded into a feature length film.

A BIFF spokeswoman said: “We have been joined this year by approx 30 industry people, overseas filmmakers and our esteemed jury.

“The coverage will hopefully support us in marketing BIFF further to overseas visitors next year.”
