World Class Young Cinema
BUFF is an exceptional film festival, because it is for everyone. Some are watching their very first movie in a cinema at BUFF. Some are screening their first feature film for the toughest and most honest critics, namely children. Some are inspired to tell stories with moving images themselves. Since 1984, BUFF Filmfestival has been the most important screenings venues for films for children and young people in the Nordic countries.
In more recent years, BUFF is also attracting a growing number of professionals who work in the industry. To encourage the production of films for a young audience is very important as it is culture aimed at children. Films for children and youths are often produced on a limited budget and generally do not get much attention in the media. As such, BUFF wants to be a forum that highlights questions and facilitates discussion around access to film and the need to find a sustainable way of producing great film for children and young people. In 1992 BUFF was awarded a Guldbagge for its enthusiastic work in promoting good film for children and young people. BUFF aims to reach out to its young visitors with films from all over the world that help them see things in a broader perspective. Another of BUFF’s drivers is to teach young people about the influence of film in society. Films that that touch, engage and make the viewer ask questions are 100% BUFF.
BUFF, the International Children and Young People’s Film Festival in Malmö, was founded in 1984 and is a non-profit organization. The aim was, and still is, to screen good films for children and young people as well as adults. A meeting place for people working with children, young people and film. BUFF strives to open the possibilities for more influences from Europe and the rest of the world by showing films that might never be screened otherwise. In the cinema we get to meet different cultures, hear foreign languages and tag along on endless adventures. BUFF considers children and young people to be the most exciting resource we´ve got, our future.
