At this point, the Buffalo Niagara International Film Festival (BNIFF) is four days into its scheduling, with one week remaining. The screenings take place at the Market Arcade Film and Arts Center in Downtown Buffalo, with start times ranging from 4pm on weekdays to 11am on weekends. The dual cinema screens can run as late as 10pm – meaning that there are fantastic films being shown every day at varying times… so there’s no reason not to check out some of the action (here’s the entire line-up). If you’re looking for humor, BNIFF has got it. There’s also schlock, horror, romance and documentaries, served up by both regional and international makers. There’s something for everyone, with a chance to see films that would otherwise not be viewable so close to home.
Lead image: Elizabeth Bathory (Feature, 79m) – by Elizabeth Nixon and Andrew Nixon – (Buffalo, NY) – Katarina and Anika are trapped in a dungeon in 16th century Hungary. The stagnant dungeon air is soon disturbed by sinister forces and distant horrific memories of Countess Elizabeth Bathory. Their only hope is trust in each other and trust in God. But is that enough? Catch the film this evening at 8pm.
