Braziers International Film Festival


Years running: 8 (since 2017)

Braziers International Film Festival

International Film Festival.


Running over three days, Braziers International Film Festival (BIFF) features a diverse and dynamic program of international films, screened in the unique and historical setting of Braziers Park School of Integrative Social Research. The programs include documentary, animation, fiction, expanded cinema and contemporary artists' film & video.

Selected by a team of artist-filmmakers, and run as a not-for-profit collective, the festival takes place on the Braziers Park estate, home to the annual Supernormal Festival. Films are projected to audiences in a cinema-style environment, with screenings, workshops and special events taking place inside a large, historic 17th century barn adapted for public performances, in addition to the Gothic manor house and custom-built outdoor structures. With both 16mm and digital video projections, each program screening is followed by group discussion and Q&A with attending film-makers, who are invited to Braziers. 


The Glaister Award:

Voted by the audience, the festival will present a film-maker with the 'Glaister Award'. Named after the founder of Braziers, Norman Glaister, the award recognizes a film which makes a positive contribution to social development and action in the world today.

The program is selected by a team of artist-filmmakers, who have a particular focus on contemporary artists' moving image work, but who are also looking for a diverse range of films in any genre.
