Dear BFF Community, We hope you are spending more time this year focusing on good stuff like family, friends and things that make you happy. For us, one thing that makes us overwhelmingly happy is that 2022 marks our 15th anniversary!

We are currently planning for a live festival, however, as we continue to navigate the pandemic, plans may change. But rest assured, whether it is fully live, hybrid, or online, we've been successful in producing all scenarios so we know it will be a great event.

The winner of the World Cinema Documentary Grand Jury Prize at Sundance was the animated docudrama "Flee" by Jonas Poher Rasmussen. The story follows Amin, an Afghan refugee now living in Denmark, and shares for the first time the painful story of his youth. A tremendously personal film that makes Oscars History with nominations for best animated documentary and international feature #oscars #sundance #animated #documentary

Jane Campion has become the first woman filmmaker to receive multiple Oscar nominations in the Best Director category!
