BIMFILMS 2015 Goes International
The Barbados Visual Media Festival, now renamed “BimFilms“, will once again be hosted by the Barbados Film & Video Association Inc. (BFVA) from October 1st to 31st this year. The Festival will feature a series of screenings of local films across Barbados, filmmaking and screenwriting competitions as well as the prestigious Barbados Film Industry Awards ceremony to be held on October 21st, which recognizes and rewards the work of those in the local film sector.
Only in its second year, the Festival has already extended its offerings to include content from not only Barbados and the rest of the Caribbean but also North America and Africa. The work of Barbadians will be screened alongside those of the Caribbean Travelling Film Showcase which includes content from our French and Spanish speaking neighbours in the Caribbean.
Details on volunteering for and attending the festival can be found on the BFVA’s website – barbadosfilms.org or on their facebook page.
