Fond of indipendent cinema? In Rome the RIFF is waiting for you

The Independent Film Festival has been for ten years the Rome’s foremost cinema event.

If you are in rome and want some of indipendent cinema and visions, it will be for you to join the festival, which is showcasing in the current event more than 80 international movies at some of the city’s most popular theatres and cinemas.

The awards? This year is over €50,000, and the winning production has the occasion to go for theatre distribution.

The RIFF Awards are also the “Corti in Luce Award” (again offering theatre distribution to the winner), and the “New Vision Award”, granted to the most talented and emerging film director.

The RIFF philosophy is to support and broadcast an essentially young and international cinema.

The next generation cinema and cultural ideas and trends are here combining to show the audience a lively connection brought about by the new visual and narrative languages.

Independent cinema can not only renew itself in both form and content, but also pave the way to mainstream.

Your passion for innovation will lead you here at RIFF.
