50 year old Freshman Suzanne Heim-Bowen, a feature documentary film by Deborah J. McDonald, is one of 120 independent films selected this week for the eighth Beloit International Film Festival (BIFF) in Wisconsin on February 14-17th. Chosen from among more than 450 submissions, it is also in the running for one of the Festival’s annual Biffy awards, Best Documentary, presented on opening night.

The Beloit International Film Festival is recognized as one of the leading young festivals in the country and has been cited as an alternative to the Sundance Film Festival by the New York Times. BIFF 2013 features the full range of indie films including animation, features, documentaries and shorts. Films are shown in more than a dozen settings in several communities 90 minutes northwest of Chicago. Film venues range from large college and community halls to restaurants and shops transformed for four days into cinemas.
