The Belize International Film Festival (BelizeIFF) aims to stimulate film and audio-visual appreciation and production in Belize and its surrounding regions with the following actions: 

  • Showcase international independent films to give BelizeIFF audiences a window into the cultural and social realities of countries.
  • Encourage industry networking via an annual symposium held during the festival.
  • Partner with schools at secondary and tertiary levels for competitions, internships, lecture series, and a basic production workshop with the aim of inspiring a new generation of filmmakers.
  • Conduct year-round workshops geared towards developing the skills and marketability of industry workers to international levels so they can confidently compete in a growing film marketplace.
