Beaufort Internation Film Festival

February 16 - 20
The Beaufort International Film Festival is a celebration of student and Independent cinema from all over the United States and abroad. With its richly deserved reputation as the beautiful Lowcountry setting for many major motion pictures, Beaufort seeks to honor up and coming filmmakers and attract new film production to its shores. 

This year we welcome again filmmakers from around the world. Over 200 submissions were received from 24 countries and representatives from the US and some of those countries will be in attendance at this year's festivities. We are also privileged to present the first-ever Jean Ribaut Excellence in Music for Film Award to American Composer Charles Denler. In addition, we will present the inaugural Santini Patriot Spirit Award to Hollywood Director and Producer Jonathan Flora for his documentary “Lt. Dan Band: For the Common Good”. The "Santini Award" recognizes that filmmaker whose film reflects positively on our men and women serving proudly in our armed forces.

Tickets can be purchased at the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce VCB Visitor Center, located in the historic Arsenal Building at 713 Craven Street, Downtown Beaufort or by calling 843-525-8500.  For media inquiries, Bruce Doneff 201.966.6583
