RIIFF: August 4-19, 2009 & throughout the year...

crowdThe Rhode Island International Film Festival™ is the largest festival in New England, showcasing 289 cinematic works submitted from over 53 countries, and 32 states in the United States. There were 58 World Premieres and 41 US Premieres. A total of 33 Narrative Features, 76 Documentaries were screened. Following months of adjudication and review, Festival films were selected from over 3,000 submissions.


RIIFF is considered "one of the most exciting new festivals to come along" says Chris Gore in the "Ultimate Film Festival Survival Guide, 2004." It is also a qualifying festival for the Short Film Academy Award through its affiliation with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. RIIFF is the only festival in New England with this accolade.
