Black Hills FILM FESTIVAL


BH Film Festival

The annual Black Hills Film Festival serves as a platform for new and emerging independent film artists. It also proffers film classes and forums that allow artists to come together, learn more about their craft, and showcase their skills. The entire event is supported by a number of community sponsors and built on the talents of independent film professionals.
