The Byron Bay International Film Festival provides a platform for independent filmmakers locally, nationally and from around the world. It is BBIFF's intention to preserve the unique spirit of Byron Bay within the festival itself - reflecting the local community by maintaining a strong emphasis on social and environmental issues, human rights, diversity and multiculturalism, creativity, indigenous culture, spirit, healing, connecting to nature, conscious thinking and positive living, music of every variety, marine preservation, colorful characters, humor and, of course being Byron Bay, surfing.
However while the festival integrates the values and filmmaking talents of the Byron Bay community, it programs international films so that its audiences can experience stories, people and places worlds away. BBIFF supports independent filmmakers in all stages of their careers and they believe in creating opportunities wherever possible - profiling selected filmmakers and promoting their films both before and after their festival. The Byron Bay International Film Festival brings the work of talented filmmakers to appreciative and intelligent audience members, some of whom who are leaders in the Australian Film Industry.
