Through an annual film festival BHRFF supports independent filmmakers, fosters dialogue and promotes action. For twelve years, volunteer committee members have selected scores of insightful and moving films they hope will encourage the community to explore and engage with critical issues. Films are followed by facilitated discussion, some led by the filmmakers themselves. See the Film History tab above for action you can take on film issues.
We are again supporting the Pickford Cinema's Community Cinema series. A social issue film shows each last Tuesday of the month at 5:30 PM. See our "Calendar" for specific film information.
Another successful festival this year! We had over 2100 attendees at eight community venues. Many thanks to festival volunteers, venue coordinators, and sponsoring individuals and businesses. We could not do this great annual event in Bellingham without you.
2014 Festival:Film submissions for our next festival can be made between August 15 and October 31, 2013.
