“This is a legendary festival and crucial for genre cinema”
Guillermo del Toro
42nd edition of the BIFFF
The BIFFF offers more than just horror movies. It is first and foremost a genre film festival that is open-minded, and offers a great deal of variety. Its programme serves up thrillers, science fiction films, fantasy films, black comedies, action films, as well as many other genres.
As one of the most famous genre film festivals in the world, the BIFFF does not limit itself to screening feature films and shorts. In the course of its 13 days, almost twenty peripheral activities will be on offer. The programme includes the famous vampire ball, the must-see make-up competition, an art exhibition, as well as many other surprising events.
Created in 1983 with the aim of organising a festival between friends, here we are 42 years later, with a great worldwide reputation! And a few more wrinkles…
With about 100 feature films per year and 42 years of service, the BIFFF has now screened more than 4000 films.
Each year, more than 50,000 visitors come to enjoy our many sessions.
