Watch BIFF+ at home!
A curated selection of films from previous BIFF editions, and an exclusive selection of films from this year’s festival – directly into your own living room.
Call it whatever you want – BIFF-in-your-living-room, quarantine-BIFF, home-alone-BIFF, or just not-in-Bergen-BIFF.
We’re proud to launch our own streaming service online: BIFF+ is a film rental site for people who love BIFF and trust our curating, but who have reasons to have a stay-at-home-festival.
For those who cannot visit our BIFF venues: Around half of this year’s festival are now available to stream on BIFF+ from the day after the festival premiere until the end of October - or until it’s sold out. Some of this year’s festival titles have a limited amount of screenings available on BIFF+, so it can sell out also online.
BIFF+ is going to be open all year, and the films from previous BIFF editions will continue to be available, also after October.
Spread the word to family and friends – finally a BIFF for the whole country!
