Late last year (2018) it was rumoured that film makers in Bayelsa State are planning for an international film festival. It’s no longer rumour as we want to inform the public, film makers and lovers of film that the event will be holding in October 2019. This was confirmed after a close door meeting between the organizers of BIFF and film makers in the state. According to Mr. Moses Etonzor, the CEO of BIFF, “We want to make it known to the public that we the film makers in Bayelsa have decided to host an international film festival. This festival will go a long way in busting film making in the state and also inspire our young and upcoming film makers. We are working tirelessly to ensure that we host a film festival that will be of a high standard and quality and we’re using this medium to invite every film maker nationally and internationally to anticipate and plan to attend BIFF 2019” he said.
