The Rhode Island International Film Festival is dedicated to creating opportunities for artistic exchange, recognizing achievement and innovation in storytelling, and encouraging film preservation and restoration.
RIIFF grants over $50,000 USD in cash and prizes to winning filmmakers, including software, scholarships, consulting, and production services. Exhibiting filmmakers are encouraged to attend the Festival, and receive all-access passes, reduced rates on area hotels, inns, and B&B’s, or the option to stay free of charge with community hosts. RIIFF’s nightly after-parties provide a networking platform for the more than 300 international filmmakers and industry professionals who attend each year.
