Birmingham Internation Film Society

About Birmingham International Film Society

Birmingham International Film Society began in May 2008 to bring foreign language and independent cinema to Birmingham. Our aim is to exhibit the wide variety of films from around the world which will otherwise be passed over by the commercial operators in the city.


The Society has built partnerships and developed links with groups and organisations reflecting local communities and their interests including Amnesty International, Cuba Solidarity Campaign, Flatpack Festival, Friends of the Earth and Palestine Solidarity Campaign.

Affiliated to the British Federation of Film Societies, BIFS has worked alongside other film societies and festivals to ensure that we bring our audiences the very best films.

The Society values the feedback and input of our audience, and aims to reflect their suggestions in our programme.
