The Big Bear Lake International Film Festival is a non-profit organization dedicated to showcasing the emerging talent of screenwriters and independent filmmakers within the idyllic setting of Big Bear Lake. Our goal is to nurture a festival, which is highly creative, filmmaker friendly and which provides an educational experience for those people interested in all aspects of the film industry.
The festival screens independent feature films, short films, student films, high school student films, documentaries, animation and family films. Jury and Audience Awards are given in each category in addition to a Student Cinematography Award.
Each year there is a special sidebar or cultural showcase. We also hold a screenwriting competition with agents, managers and producers as jurors in addition to seminars during the Festival.
The festival has a film industry presence with film & screenwriting jurors in attendance and participating on the popular screenwriting/filmmaker panel discussion on Saturday morning.
We also offer a pitchfest on Sunday morning.
