Years running: 15 (since 2009)
A festival for filmmakers achieving great things with tiny budgets.
The Berlin Independent Film Festival is at the epicentre for low-budget filmmaking in Europe. While the Berlin Independent Film Festival is not connected with the Berlin Film Festival (Berlinale), BIFF runs at the same time, and just down the street from the European Film Market and draws on all the film industry power gathered in Berlin for those events.
As well as a offering plenty of screening opportunities for indie films, BIFF is developing into a crucial business hub for the low-budget film industry.
The Berlin Independent Film Festival gives special attention to films by first- and second-time directors and films achieving amazing results with small budgets.
BIFF will host a daily skills-share workshop where attending filmmakers help each other out with marketing advice and EFM tips. Also, every evening will include a social and networking event for attending filmmakers to build their contacts base.
