Beacon Independent Film Festival joins Beacon After School Program

biff-logoThe Beacon Independent Film Festival is pleased to announce our participation in the Beacon After School Program. B.A.F.F. (the Beacon Afterschool Film Festival) will give participants an opportunity to learn the basics of filmmaking by creating a Public Service Announcement (PSA). Kids will learn about several aspects of filmmaking including using the filmmaking equipment, story development with a focus on short-form storytelling and the basics of post-production. We will create a short video to share at the end of this session. For more information about the Beacon After School Program go to
