The evening will start 7pm and is expected to be a lively event with live entertainment and a DJ until late. A minimum donation of $ 75 is expected and this includes 2 complimentary Cocktails and Canapes by by ALEXANDRA Catering.

The Bahamas International Film Festival is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing the local Bahamian community and international visitors with a diverse presentation of films from around the world. In addition to offering films that might not otherwise be released theatrically in the Bahamas, BIFF will provide a unique cultural experience and set of educational programs and forums for exploring the past, present and future of cinema.

Over the last 7 years BIFF has developed into a prestigious and well-respected event throughout the Bahamas and around the world. Career Achievement Awards over the years have gone to Johnny Depp, Laurence Fishburne, Daryl Hannah, Nicolas Cage, Roger Corman, and Alan Arkin. BIFF has also had the privilege to honour Hollywood’s Rising Stars, Anna Faris, Naomie Harris, and Sophie Okonedo.
