Our mission: To recognize overlooked individuals and communities who seek to inspire, educate and share their world through film.

Not Your Average Film Festival

BHIFF is a federally recognized 501c3 nonprofit. In 2019, we created our festival and entitled it “Beyond Hollywood” because we want to lend a hand beyond Hollywood to creators and artists in marginalized groups who rarely have a chance to share their stories beyond their own communities. We partner with production houses and distribution companies to connect these filmmakers with professionals that can help take their projects to new heights. Film can be a very tedious and expensive art form and we take pride in helping overlooked communities have access to the means of distribution that they normally wouldn’t.

"Beyond Hollywood went above and BEYOND (as the name states) my expectations, thoughtfully organized, great M.C.'s, and a beautiful location, I would recommend this festival." -Jerry Mcgrath, Producer

"It was a really beautiful night!

the red carpet was tasteful. they had good media there to cover everything. they ask good questions to the filmmakers and you can tell they care! Everyone behind the BHIFF team was super friendly and relatable and warm. i genuinely had a blast and if you have the privilege of being selected in this festival it is not a night you will want to miss. 10/10 would submit again! CHEERS"
