ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Our first seven years were a resounding success and set the tone for an extraordinary annual event.  With Actors and Directors arriving from around the World to participate, keep an eye on this festival.

Every filmmaker works hard at casting their project, directing the actors, and relies on the actor to portray their vision to the audience.  An Actors’ performance determines the effect your film will have on an audience and how well it will be received.  With hard working talented performers, your film is successful.

Shari Carlson, the festival director, is herself an actress and teacher with her own studio in San Francisco, and this is the core of her festival. She lives and breathes acting and its obvious she cares deeply of the craft and those that participate in it. It really was an honor to be considered and to be a part of the BAFF in 2017. The ceremonies held looked way beyond fun and I wished I could have been able to attend but was working on a project the same weekend. They shared info throughout on social media for those unable to be there. I highly recommend BAFF, a very original fest from a dedicated acting teacher and staff!
