The 7th annual Boulder International Film Festival (BIFF) was a hit, attracting award-winning films, world-renowned filmmakers and a record-breaking number of film-loving attendees. Congratulations to executive director Robin Beeck and director Kathy Beeck for running an amazing event. BIFF has made quite a name for itself – one of the 25 coolest film festivals in the world, according to MovieMaker magazine – and our whole community benefits.

We’d like to think we’ve had a small hand in its success. The Camera has partnered with the Festival every year, producing and distributing its event guide and marketing the event.

“Thanks so much for all you do,” wrote Kathy Beeck. “BIFF 2011 was a great success thanks to your continuing contributions helping us grow each year!”

 The Boulder International Film Festival is one of the more than 120 local organizations we are honored to sponsor every year. The fact that this one happens to attract celebrities to our fair city is icing on the cake. We were there for year one, and we’re looking forward to another amazing partnership and event in year eight.

Mark your calendar now for the 2012 Festival on President’s Day weekend. You’ll find all the information you need in the Camera and at
