Join us this October ‘23 for our most ambitious year of the Birkenhead International Film Festival yet.

Tickets are free or donation based

This October Convenience Gallery will bring the world to Birkenhead at the Williamson Art Gallery for the very first time. Step into the world of the BIFF with our blockbuster 2023 festival!

As always, the Birkenhead International is free to attend, and we hope to keep it that way.  One way you can play a role in keeping it a free festival for everyone is by securing one of our BIFF BFF (Birkenhead International Film Festival, Best Friends Forever) tickets as a pay if you can option.

These tickets come from £3 right up to £100, with each tier including some BIFF merch and goodies as a thank you. However the free tickets are also still available too.

We will be hosting the festival on Saturday 21st October 2023, hot on heels of our SOLD OUT 2022 festival. We are delighted to bring you our 4th festival, this year. This is a free festival, however we do also offer a BIFF BFF ticket, for those who can donate or pay a contribution which helps us to keep this festival free for everyone.

The BIFF brings together a collective of filmmakers to explore the art of film from a varied range of backgrounds, filmographies and genres.

BIFF is all about bringing the world to Birkenhead and so for our 4th Edition of the BIFF we are exploring the theme of ‘World-building’ within the films selected. Films are submitted through an online platform by Directors from across the world.

The remit is that films are in the short film category, and have been selected by both festival directors and community screeners who have watched a long list of films to make the final selection of films for the final showcase.

Our festival will feature a selection of short films from around the globe, alongside a intro panel talk from industry leaders. This year we have incredible partners such as Northern Fortress Film from Bradford, Scenegraph Studios, Focal Studios and our wonderful hosts the Williamson Art Gallery.

The announcement for this year’s festival selection will take place later this September
