About Bright Future
Brights Future Independent Film Festival Gothenburg (BFIFF) is a new film festival for independent and young filmmakers worldwide. The festival will be organized by the newly started association Bright Future.
The festival wants to show films from all over the world that are made by independent as well as young filmmakers. The main focus is films that give a positive vision or hope for the future or films that take place in a future where the world looks much better than it does today. We also accept films that address today's problems that deal with human rights, environmental problems, wars, poverty and so on.
The festival aims to form a unique and inspiring platform and meeting place between filmmakers, artists and people to exchange ideas and visions with each other. It is also a great opportunity to explore the positive and creative ideas that we will be sharing from individuals from different backgrounds. Now all these unique ideas have the chance to flourish and spread to the rest of the world.
