Make-up Contest

Sunday 14.04 - Why so serious..?

This year marks the 41st edition of the BIFFF make-up competition, a long-standing tradition that harks all the way back to the festival’s second edition!

Now scheduled to take place over a single day, this event promises a day rich in intensity, emotion and imaginative surprises!

We invite all make-up enthusiasts to choose from two categories: with or without prostheses. The thematic essence remains unchanged: linking genre cinema, fantasy, imagination, science fiction and horror!

Please note that places are limited! We will be selecting the most promising projects to take part in our competition. Although we provide basic make-up materials, we strongly recommend that participants bring their own. A jury will select three winners in each category. The awards ceremony will take place on the “Happenings” stage in our BIFFF village.

So, are you ready to dazzle us with your creativity?

  • 12:00 : Welcome
