Thursday • September 29, 2022 • 6:30pm – 8:00pm

Enjoy a taste of the Boulder International Film Festival (BIFF) right in Morgan County!

Named one of the “25 Coolest Film Festivals” in the world by MovieMaker Magazine, the Boulder International Film Festival brings films and filmmakers from around the world to Boulder, CO as a celebration of the art of cinema. The festival is then taken on the road to the rest of Colorado to introduce a selection of the films to populations throughout the state.

BIFF has developed a reputation as one of the most influential young film festivals in the U.S., with an extraordinary number of new-but-unknown feature films, documentaries, and shorts that have gone on from early screenings at BIFF to significant box-office success and multiple Oscar nominations.
