We will be hosting the Second BIFF (Birkenhead International Film Festival) on the 2nd October 2021. The BIFF aims to bring together a collective of filmmakers to explore the art of film from a varied range of backgrounds, filmographies and genres.
Birkenhead International Film Festival is founded by Benjamin Loveland, David Harrison, Andrew Shaw & Ryan Gauge. Benjamin Loveland & David Harrison work together on a number of projects including the Super8Bit Podcast; a celebration of the art of film & video games. Benjamin Loveland has had a passion for films since he first watched Nosferatu as a teenager. His goal is simple, to talk and discuss the art of film each and every day; so far he has discovered that Film Festivals are the perfect medium for discussion, meeting new people and the education of film. David Harrison is the creative mind behind Super8Bit, with a keen eye for editing, sound & the art of making films; being a prolific filmmaker himself.
Together they have had a dream of uniting their passion of film and arts together under many different projects. This is an idea shared by Andrew Shaw and Ryan Gauge at the Convenience Gallery, who are an artist-led initiative; A community and contemporary arts gallery and collective based in Birkenhead. Convenience Gallery specialises in creative partnerships, artists, organisations and communities. Both organisations have teamed up to create the Birkenhead International Film Festival, a festival dedicated to bringing the world to Birkenhead. Located at the beating heart of Birkenhead at the Bloom Building; a building which houses a progressive and unique concept rewriting the rules around how the worlds of culture, community, social action and mental health can flourish together. Bloom Building also houses the Open Door Charity which reimagines common approaches to mental health.
