It is the lone Festival in New England with these distinctions. To learn more, click here.
RIIFF’s Opening Night screening spotlights some of the extraordinary short film submissions that will serve as a taste of the breadth of subject matter, inspiration, and talent that is prevalent in the festival. Help us discover what will be the next Academy Award winners.
