The 2013 BIFFYs were presented at the Launch Party kicking off the eighth annual Beloit International Film Festival which runs February 14 through Sunday, February 17th, 2013 in Beloit, Janesville and Rockford, Wisconsin.
The top prize, the BIFFY for Best Feature Film, went to Azooma, a South Korean film. It is the story of a young mother who seeks revenge for the rape of her 10 year-old daughter. Disappointed by the indifference of the police, she decides to chase down the rapist herself. South Korean filmmaker Jiseung Lee was on hand to receive the award.
The BIFFY for Best Documentary went to Fambul Tok (Family Talk) which tells the story of healing in post-conflict Sierra Leone through intimate stories of perpetrators and victims in an unprecedented program of tradition-based truth-telling and forgiveness ceremonies. The award went to U.S. filmmakers Sara and Rory Kennedy.
