Event Details

The Ridgefield Independent Film Festival (RIFF) celebrates independent films from around the world that enlighten, entertain, and inspire moviegoers through compelling visual storytelling. RIFF brings innovative films and filmmakers to the artistically vibrant community of Ridgefield, Connecticut, for an annual four-day festival that includes screenings, panel discussions, and nightly parties. Venues are all walking distance and include the Ridgefield Playhouse, Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield Library, Keeler Tavern Museum, and the new ACT Theatre.

The annual film festival will be held on Thursday, October 18 through Sunday, October 21, 2018.   FOR FULL SCHEDULE VISIT RIFF WEBSITE 

All films are screened and selected by a team of committed filmmakers and experienced viewers with an eye to discovering extraordinary narrative, documentary, and animated films. Entries are judged on a point system for craft, originality, and storytelling with winners of jury awards receiving festival gifts and cash prizes for their work.

RIFF was founded in 2016 by Ridgefield playwright and theatre director Joanne Hudson. For 2018, RIFF is being reimagined by a new creative team with decades of experience in the entertainment and publishing industries. TownVibe Media president Geoffrey Morris serves as RIFF executive director, filmmaker and writer Megan Smith-Harris is festival director, and film and television veteran Bill Harris as general manager.
