😞 We don't have a program for this festival yet. Would you like to help us add it?
We're a seriously traditional and FILMMAKER-CENTRIC festival. Our event is five days. In 2021 we featured 65+ films as an in-person event during the pandemic. Pop-Up-Drive-In! Fun times and we had a very unique festival. We were happy to do it. We're committed to offering our filmmakers the best screening experience we can. The BSFF takes place in one of the most beautiful locations in the United States: Borrego Springs, CA. Our vibe is desert eclectic. Vintage trailers, refined mid-century modern neighborhoods, primitive pup-tent camping, or even world class resort living, Borrego Springs showcases it all. The BSFF throws a happy and warm friendly party for everyone. If you're making your first film or your twentieth, we want you here. Our selection committee embraces a mix of film making talent. Everything from highly crafted films to sentimental favorites are part of our programming. Our community loves the BSFF and always sells-out our festival passes. Packed houses and a lively Q&A are all part of the event. Most important, we’re an old-school film festival. In the crowded marketplace of film festivals we excel simply because we truly offer a great time, remarkable attendance, and we go out of our way to accommodate our filmmaker guests. You’ll meet and greet your audience, lounge with other filmmakers, and interact with everyone. We have homemade cookies. Do you know about our homemade cookies? Yeah, it's a thing. "This is an amazing festival! If your film is fortunate enough to be selected you MUST attend this one. The people organizing/running the festival and the local community is completely supportive and really care about art and the artists." --Mark Cade, Director, "Nice Guy" "The festival also has a great filmmakers lounge with awesome homemade cookies, and they give you two all-access passes for everything. I plan to return to this festival every year even if I don't have a film showing!" -- Steve Oldfield, Director, "Lines of Sight" Still bragging about them cookies. After close to a decade of running the BSFF we're getting better while having more fun all the time. It's the sort of festival any filmmaker truly appreciates: crowds, a great location, and a warm quirky vibe. We welcome your creative energy to our film festival and invite you to join us in building a tradition celebrating innovative film making.
