BIFF gets off to a strong start

The Beloit International Film Festival is enjoying strong attendance. Executive Director Greg Gerard expects eight-thousand by the time the 15th annual festival ends on Sunday. Gerard adds several shows have been sold out with some surprising hits like “Grizzlies”.  Other big moments anticipated for the rest of this week include the Student Filmmakers Showcase on Wednesday, Silent Film Showcase on Friday, and the Classic Film “Princess Bride” for the Sunday Finale.
