Filmmaking for the Future
BCFF is a filmmaker-to-filmmaker-award-giving film festival.
All officially selected filmmakers will have the opportunity to nominate their peers films for an award in every category.
Jury only selects the BlackCat Grand Prix Award and is a final decision makers if there is a tie in other categories.
This way we bring the awards closer to the industries real celebration of the greatness that is in other ways pushed away on path of already established cinema machine that rarely lets any new, fresh and talented works in.

How it all works?
Everything is like as with normal film festivals, but the twist comes at judging and the Jury.
Our programming team will select 3-5 films in each category (one film can be nominated in more than one of them) and our international Jury will select a winner for our Kivi Gran Prix Award.
Other winners will be chosen by filmmakers that were Officially Selected and registered for nominating the winners in every category.
We believe there is disenchantment with the anonymity and exclusivity of the festival circuit. We aim to provide a support system for emerging talents and independent filmmakers, based entirely on their skill set and passion.
An event dedicated to celebrating new-found, edgy, pushing the borders, independent filmmaking.
BCFF was dedicated to private storytelling within the local cinematic universe of Slovenia.
These films were generally harder to access, and had difficulties reaching larger audiences, but their position outside of mainstream cinema and their abbreviated length allow the filmmakers more experimentation and artistic freedom. Now we take it public and wider.
We are looking for inspiring filmmaking from around the globe. We want to see storytelling that explores all limits of its industry. Do not be afraid to show your specific way of making motion pictures and how you dream, think and create.
