What’s It All About?

Launched in 2004, the Bahamas International Film Festival (BIFF) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to creating a cine-literate arts community, bridging cultures, gaining knowledge and attracting a targeted tourism sector through the film industry. In its 12th anniversary, BIFF will screen more than 130 films from 40 countries including 9 international premieres, 28 Caribbean premieres and Bahamian premieres. The festival features four competition categories – Spirit of Freedom: Narrative; Spirit of Freedom: Documentary; New Visions; and

Short Film.

Indian Connect

This year, the festival will screen three Indian films – Let’s Dance To The Rhythm, India’s Daughter and Family Mart. India’s Daughter is a documentary film directed by Leslee Udwin, who examines the society and values of India after a 23-year-old medical student is raped and murdered on a bus. Let’s Dance To The Rhythm (Nachom-ia Kumpasar) is a film revolving around the bitter-sweet relationship between a young singer and her musician mentor set against the backdrop of the jazz clubs of Bombay and musicians from Goa during the ‘60s. On the other hand, Family Mart directed by Jayaprakash Koroth is the story of an urban family who tries to explore a consumer market to buy love and happiness in a world conquered by materialistic culture.

Watch Out For!

Opening Film

Carol

The 12th edition of BIFF will open with Todd Haynes’ upcoming film Carol featuring Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara and Sarah Paulson. Based on a novel written by Patricia Highsmith, it is a study in gender relations and class relations in America in the early ‘50s. Set in New York, the film tells the story of Carol (Cate Blanchett), a high-society woman, and the young department store clerk Therese (Rooney Mara). Therese, who dreams of a better life, falls for the married Carol, developing a fast bond that becomes a love with complicated consequences.
