Mission / description Since its first edition in 2001, RIFF has become an event that is followed with more and more interest by the public in Rome and a reference for worldwide filmmakers. In these years, the Riff has received works coming from the 5 continents, ending up being an attentive witness representative of the directions and passions of the independent film industry. An international vocation that has found expression in the right choice during the film selection (giving priority to national and international preview). There was therefore no coincidence in the fact that the feature film winners of the latest editions were foreign films.
Just to mention few of them, the North American “Self Medicated” by Monty Lapic in 2006, the Italian-American “Punk Love” by Nick Lyon in 2007 and in 2008 the Estonian “The Class” by Imar Raag. The last two editions of the RIFF, won by two great directors such as Steve McQueen, “Hunger” (2008) and Andrea Arnold with “Fish Tank”, have engendered particular interest among critics and public. An international soul that has given to the RIFF the opportunity not to focus only on a specific issue but to use the dialogue, research and film experimentation as identikit of the festival.
