2017 Schedule

The Festival this year will run from Wednesday night (in Bayfield) to Thursday night (in Drummond) to Friday and Saturday (in Ashland).  There will be no Sunday showings this year.  Instead, we will end a little earlier than usual on Saturday night (and have our awards ceremony on Saturday night) and then go out to celebrate ten years of the Big Water Film Festival.  Our full schedule is posted here.


Our sponsorships cover about half of our annual costs.  If you would like to become a sponsor for 2017 (our 10th Anniversary year!) please click here.


We'd love to have you volunteer for the 2017 Festival.  Click  here.  We'll get in touch with you.  It's fun to volunteer at BWFF, and you get to see free films!

Our submittal period is now closed for 2017, but it's never too early to start thinking about 2018.  Please see information about submitting films on our FAQ page.  Our entry form is here.
