BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo International Film Festival is back, kicking off Thursday night with a party at the North Park Theater on Hertel Avenue. 

From now until Sunday, films from all over the world will be on display at venues across Western New York. There are also workshops, industry panel discussions, as well as an off-screen art and music performance planned this weekend.

These events will take place at the North Park Theater, Hallways Contemporary Art Center, Squeaky Wheel Film and Media Center, and the Burchfield Penney Art Center.  

"We have an afterparty every night and so it's a nice experience for everyone to come and mingle and we scale it for buffalo, so it's inexpensive," Buffalo International Film Festival Artistic Director John Fink said.

You can buy a B.I.F.F. Bison pass on its website for $45, which will get you into all screenings, parties, and events.
