BIAFF 2009 quick-links: festival | Diamond/Special | ***** | **** | *** | ** | * | AV | watch BIAFF films | Festival Home

IAC's grading system divides our annual competition entries into five bands, each of which covers a broad range of quality. There are gray areas where one band approaches the next.  A "top 1-Star" might possibly be a "bottom 2-Star" with different judges. No judging system is perfect. Thanks to the generous film makers who put their work on the web, we can give you some examples.   Are these typical?  No. We could only choose from what is available on the web.
Some of these are hosted on Vimeo and require Adobe Flash version 10 or above. Download that free here from Adobe.
