As previously reported, the 2007 festival tribute will be given to director, Arthur Penn, (“Bonnie and Clyde“) a Berkshire County resident, who has worked in film and theater for over 50 years. “I am amazed at the incredible talent in the independent filmmaking world that we have garnered for the festival, commented BIFF founder and director, Kelley R. Vickery in a statement. “It is with great pride, through the hard work of many individuals, that we present an incredible second year with over 50 films representing a dozen countries.” For a full line up and additional information, visit the BIFF website.
