Through an annual film festival BHRFF supports independent filmmakers, fosters dialogue and promotes action. For fourteen 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.
2014 Film Festival:
The 2014 Festival was a big success. Despite some snowy weather, about 1600 people attended. Many had a chance to interact in person or by Skype with 6 film directors and 1 film producer in lively post-screening discussions.
We have posted the 2014 Audience Awards and Jury Awards. Find the selections under the "Awards" tab above. In April, we will list under the "Film History" tab which films are available to you in the Bellingham Public Library (BPL) and/or Wilson Library at Western Washington University (WWU).
