What's New at RIIFF in 2008

(We will be updating this page frequently as programs lock into place)



America loses an acting legend; the world loses a gifted artist:

Paul Newman dies at age 83


The iconic actor, Paul Newman, was an Academy Award-winner, director, and noted philanthropist. His worked shaped and determined the role of the male lead in cinema from the 1950's to the present. He has left an amazing legacy for which we all grateful. It can truly be said that Paul was someone who actually made a diference.


We extend out heartfelt condolences to his wife, Joanne, his children, family and friends.
