Binghamton Film Initiative


WSKG’s Arts & Culture Short Series examines the Binghamton Film Initiative, an organization founded by two Binghamton University students who were looking for an outlet to produce narrative films. Nearly two years later the group has produced over 15 films and show no signs of slowing down.

BFI is a student-founded initiative aimed at encouraging students from both the Binghamton University Theatre and Cinema departments to participate in projects together by connecting online. By utilizing the skills and resources of each department, the goal is to promote students from any department or major to create and distribute unique content.

This segment features interviews with BFI co-founders Tyler Downey and and Jared Biunno, plus behind-the-scenes footage from one of their movie sets.
