BUFF is an exceptional film festival, because it is for everyone. Some are watching their very first movie in a cinema at BUFF. Some are screening their first feature film for the toughest and most honest critics, namely children. Some are inspired to tell stories with moving images themselves. Since 1984, BUFF Filmfestival has been one of the most important screenings venues for films for children and youth in the Nordic countries.
