When & Where
RICHMOND INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
An inclusive and spirited festival designed to honor true film artists of all genres and niches. Through its film productions, shot predominantly in Virginia each winter, the festival also provides an additional collaborative platform between local filmmakers and other filmmakers from across the country and world.
Visiting filmmakers and writers will be competing for top awards with the Grand Jury and Audience during festival week with more than $20,000 in cash and prizes being awarded.
Through RIFF’s GenerationMIX and Youth Roundtable Film Series, the festival also helps foster creativity, leadership development, innovative problem solving, and grassroots activism in youth through the use of film and the arts.
From comedy to thrillers to avant-garde and social documentaries, the festival has something for everyone. The festival is an exciting four day event for film patrons, writers, filmmakers, and the arts community as it entertains, brings together talent, and helps launch careers.
