As a growing forum for low-budget independent film in Europe, the Berlin Independent Film Festival (BIFF) offers plenty of screening and business opportunities for up-and-coming filmmakers. The exciting programme of films, workshops and networking events combines the commitment to indie filmmaking ideals with a solid understanding of their potential in the marketplace.

Genres at the Berlin Independent Film Festival

The competition of the Berlin Independent Film Festival includes several categories, among them feature, documentary, sci-fi/horror, LGBT film, short film, animated short, and music video. All films are screened at the Babylon cinema in Berlin-Mitte and are in English or with English subtitles.
