Join us this Fall, as we celebrate our 14th year! We are proud to host a highly creative, filmmaker friendly, and educational festival designed for anyone interested in the film industry.

The Festival is three packed days of over 100 exciting new films, panels, parties and special events. Enjoy a vacation atmosphere while interacting with talented Filmmakers from around the world. All of this is hosted in Southern California's favorite mountain getaway: Big Bear Lake! Come see what MovieMaker Magazine called one of the "Top 50 Festivals Worth the Entry Fee" out of nearly 5,000.

BBLIFF is a platform for artists to share their work in a forum that is both educational and inspirational. We provide a truly exceptional experience for filmmakers and film enthusiasts alike. The Festival has a unique and engaging atmosphere. Our proximity to Los Angeles and Hollywood makes it easy for professionals in the Film, Television, and Entertainment Industries to access up-and-coming independent work in a relaxed setting. Our patrons, filmmakers, special guests and honorees have many opportunities to interact with each other.


We are pleased to announce the BBLIFF 2013 honorees and excited to welcome them to the festival!
