About Beyond Hollywood: 

BHIFF is a federally recognized 501c3 nonprofit. In 2019, they created their festival and entitled it “Beyond Hollywood” because they want to lend a hand beyond Hollywood to creators and artists who rarely have a chance to share their stories beyond their own communities. Partnering with production houses and distribution companies helps to connect these filmmakers with professionals that can launch their projects to new heights.
