BHFF is a true celebration of cinema and the mavericks who do what it takes to get their vision to the screen. The festival spot lights the mountain towns of Hill City, Hot Springs, Rapid City, Spearfish and other Black Hills Communities to promote world-class films and powerful workshops.
The filmmaker is the star of the Black Hills Film Festival. 2022 will be a hybrid Festival opening with several days of live screenings at multiple venues around the area which are solidly attended by an engaged community of artists and cinephiles and paired with great receptions and mixers. Then the Festival continues for more than a week of virtual film presentations to an International audience.
Producers Kevin Costner (“Dances with Wolves”), Jerry Bruckheimer (“National Treasure: Book of Secrets”) and Director Chloe Zhao (Nomadland) knew great locations when they selected the Black Hills of South Dakota, Mt. Rushmore and the Badlands for scenes in their films. Over the years, BHFF has hosted professionals such as Actors Stephen Lang (Avatar, Gods and Generals) and Connor Trinneer (Star Trek: Enterprise, American Made), Native American Director Chris Eyre (Smoke Signals), Producer Sean Covel (Napoleon Dynamite, Carter and June), Casting Director Rene Haynes, and Executives from Warner Bros Studios.
