2nd Annual BIPOC International Film Festival
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Come celebrate emerging voices in BIPOC film and media at the second annual BIPOC International Film Festival, experience a wide array of acclaimed films and engage in socially relevant discussion around representation in media.

BIPOC International Film Festival (BIFF) is on November 5th and 6th in Toronto, BIFF will showcase films by emerging and established Canadian and International Filmmakers from the BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Colour) community.

BIFF carves out a space specifically for BIPOC people in filmmaking to showcase their work and receive the recognition and acknowledgement they deserve. The festival allows for BIPOC filmmakers to have their films received and appreciated by a wider audience than they perhaps have had access to previously due to various social barriers within the film industry.

The festival is hosted by Canin Cultural Council. Participation in the festival constitutes entrants’ full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of the rules and the decisions of Canin, which are final and binding. Festival entries may be submitted by an individual or by a group. All entrants must complete the “Permission Form.” If the entrant is under the age of 18, the permission form must be signed by a parent or legal guardian.
