Running over three days, Braziers International Film Festival (BIFF) features a diverse and dynamic programme of international films, screened in the unique and historical setting of Braziers Park School of Integrative Social Research. The programmes include documentary, animation, fiction, expanded cinema and contemporary artists' film & video.
Selected by a team of artist-filmmakers, and run as a not-for-profit collective, the festival takes place on the Braziers Park estate, home to the annual Supernormal Festival. Films are projected to audiences in a cinema-style environment, with screenings, workshops and special events taking place inside a large, historic 17th century barn adapted for public performances, in addition to the Gothic manor house and custom-built outdoor structures. With both 16mm and digital video projections, each programme screening is followed by group discussion and Q&A with attending film-makers, who are invited to Braziers. The festival also features workshops and special focus programmes, which in previous editions have included artist-filmmakers Bea Haut, Karel Doing, Mary Stark & David Chatton Barker, and BEEF (Bristol Experimental Expanded Film.
