Biff calls out to filmmakers

The Bermuda International Film Festival (BIFF) is calling on Bermudian and Bermuda-based filmmakers to submit their short films to be considered for screening in the short film competition at the 22nd edition of the festival, to be held March 10-17, 2019.

Submissions from Bermudians anywhere or Bermuda-based filmmakers will be featured in the BIFF19 BerMovie Day, which has become a popular evening celebration of Bermuda film professionals. The deadline for entries for BerMovie Day at BIFF is January 1, 2019.

Bermudians and Bermuda-based filmmakers can also be considered for the prestigious Bermuda Shorts Competition which sees some 600 films submitted from around the world. Submissions may be uploaded to FilmFreeway at www.filmfreeway.com. There is no entry charge for Bermudian and Bermuda-based filmmakers. The entry fee for international films is $65.

For the Bermuda Shorts Competition, films must have been completed after October 1, 2018, and they must not have been released theatrically or shown on television prior to the festival to be eligible for Oscar® consideration. Films must also not have been made publicly available online on YouTube or Vimeo (excludes password protected posts). Submitted films must be completed and non-English films must have subtitles. All films must be 40 minutes or less.

Nearly 500 short films have been submitted to the festival for consideration to date.

The winner of the Bermuda Shorts Competition is automatically submitted to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences for consideration for the Short Film — Live Action Oscar®.
