How To Make Movies At Home
Are you and your friends making movies? If not, are you crazy? The wall between “pro” and “am” has crumbled to the ground and a new wave of folk cinema is rolling in, big time! But don’t worry, it’s never too late to start!

See How To Make Movies At Home and be peppered with lessons on the craft of filmmaking both subtle and overt! Marvel at the mysteries of Screen Direction! Gasp at the wonders of Lighting! Delve into the inner workings of a new-wave folk cinema band at their hour of greatest challenge… Walk in an absolute neophyte, walk out with a gleam in your eye! Ten real substantial lessons woven through the story, and untold others lurking in the subtext!


The BIFF  Movie Nights are celebration of great films with good friends and an awesome selection of beer provided by The Hop. We’ll screen an independent film that you may have missed the first time around or haven’t seen in a while and is not so readily available on services such as Netflix.

BIFF is a grassroots nonprofit organization that produced the 1st Annual Beacon Independent Film Festival Sept. 13-15, 2013.

BIFF’s mission also includes an education component with a filmmaking program in the middle school. The goal of the program is to guide the students through the filmmaking process, from conceiving an idea to shooting it to editing the final product. The instructors consist of a group of volunteers who are working professionals in all aspects of film and television.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact BIFF.
