BSFF 2017 Festival Info & Events

BSFF showcases the filmmaking of students around the world while presenting an international forum for their voice. Emerging filmmakers can be recognised for their work while developing their professional network beyond their own campus. 

🍿 Join us for a filmtastic evening of select student films. 

Upcoming Screenings, Award and Events:

BSFF goes digital with online screenings! We’ve enjoyed holding intimate in-kino screenings of BSFF 2017 Submissions this year, and are excited to introduce a new online format for greater international exposure and attention.

The outstanding categories of Drama, Comedy & Genre Film will be screened via live streaming on social media platforms such as Facebook Live and Periscope in the coming months. With live streaming, our audience will be able to engage with us in real-time by posting comments and reactions. It will be a wonderful opportunity for the international BSFF community to get together online, connect and interact.

We realise that some filmmakers might not be able to participate in online screenings to remain eligible for other film festivals. If this is the case, you have the choice of opting out, or you can send us supporting videos such as trailers, teasers or behind-the-scenes productions in lieu of screening your complete film. 

We will be in touch with shortlisted filmmakers with further details shortly. Meanwhile, watch this space for updates, and we’ll see you online soon! 


Past Events:

9-Month BSFF Extravaganza 

And because good things are best appreciated in small doses, we are organizing a 9-month film extravaganza from March to November 2017. Every other month will feature a screening of carefully curated films focused on a specific film two categories, interactions with student filmmakers and members of the jury, followed by the announcement of the category winner. 

This will generate maximum exposure for the filmmakers and their films, besides creating year-long visibility of the festival in the build up to the open call for BSFF 2018 which begins on 1 Nov 2017.

Film categories as follows:
Children's Film
Genre Film
Music Video
Scenography & Set Design

Let’s Talk Films!

The BSFF 2017 season will include a series of workshops, panel discussions and networking opportunities to inspire and encourage ongoing dialogue and ideas about films. We hope to provide BSFF sponsors, media companies, artists and filmmakers with positive avenues to interact with film aficionados and aspiring filmmakers, paving the way for the next generation of filmmakers to take the stage.

Stay tuned for more.
