BUFO will be held in Olde Burien, with an evening of live music, and a screening of the Burien Film Festival films. As in years past, there will be fun activities for the kids, vendors, esoteric presentations, and food trucks.

Winners will receive: 1st Place: $1,000, 2nd Place: $500, 3rd Place: $300. This year‘s Burien Film Festival filmmakers will be competing for a $5,000 prize. The contest theme is “The Maury Island Incident.” Filmmakers are asked to interpret any part of the Maury Island Incident story in any genre. Entrants will be given access to HD-quality clips from the film that they can re-purpose. Entrants will also have to highlight one of the 18 Burien neighborhoods. The films are limited to 5 -7 minutes in length. The deadline to submit will be July 31, 2023. The event is produced by the Burien Film Festival LLC, which was founded by John White and Shelli Park. BUFO will be held in late August.
