We are a ten-day festival that covers multiple genres. We truly pride ourselves on the fact that we endeavor to divide our programming equally between Local Productions, National and International Films. Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival is a very filmmaker-centric event. Over the last two years alone we’ve showcased over one hundred seventy-nine films and hosted more than fifty out of town filmmakers from as far away as Mexico, the United Kingdom and Australia.
Our goal is a simple one: to focus on the art of filmmaking in the purest sense by presenting the best independent genre films from around the world, and to shine a spotlight on local filmmakers, especially those new to the film festival experience. We are proud that our event continues to serve an important role in supporting and sharing in the current growth of film production in the region.
Buffalo enjoys a strong arts community, and Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival has been featured in The Buffalo News, Buffalo Rising, The Public and Artvoice.Additionally, Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival Co-Founder Gregory Lamberson was profiled in the April 2015 “Film in WNY” edition of Buffalo Spree Magazine.
