Created under the patronage of the National University of Theatre and Film “I.L. Caragiale” and the National University of Arts Bucharest, with the support of the Romanian National Cinema Centre, BUCHAREST INTERNATIONAL EXPERIMENTAL FILM FESTIVAL BIEFF has as its main focus the courage to experiment in cinematic language.
BIEFF is the first showcase of avant-garde cinema and visual art in Romania, a festival event with educational purpose, aimed at bringing in front of the audience highly innovative films and filmmakers from all over the world with strong personal views on contemporary reality, which also daringly explore the boundaries of cinematic language. A cinema of total creative freedom and lack of compromise.
From 2017, PETER GREENAWAY became the HONORARY PRESIDENT of the Bucharest International Experimental Film Festival BIEFF, generously joining us in our educational initiative.
