Our vision is to become the premier international Film Festival in Georgia in the near future and to continue to expand our reach becoming the major international Film Festival event in the Black Sea region focusing on art-house and independent cinema. 



BIAFF Mission 

The mission of BIAFF is to be an international event designed to enhance cultural exchange, understanding, and collaboration through the screening of new art house-house and non-commercial films from Georgia and abroad. The event provides an opportunity for well known film makers, producers and film critics to meet and share their expertise and works with other people in their respective fields and gives  local cinema lovers and other individuals a better understanding of the industry and it’s people through retrospectives. BIAFF is also focused on providing a quality educational opportunity for those people interested in film and cinematography.
