Brandenburg International Film Festival - hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, Qualitätsfilme aus aller Welt zu präsentieren sowie Indie-Filmemacher zu unterstützen, anzuerkennen und zu ehren. Es ist der Filmbruderschaft auf der ganzen Welt gewidmet. Diese Initiative zielt darauf ab, eine Plattform zu schaffen, auf der sowohl neue als auch professionelle Filmemacher zusammenkommen und verschiedene Aspekte des Filmemachens mit genau der richtigen Menge von einer Mischung aus kulturellen Identitäten bis hin zur Urbanisierung erkunden können.
