RIFF, Founder & Producer
The 2017 Richmond International Film Festival (RIFF) will be February 27-March 5th. In 2017, RIFF brings over 150 films from 35 countries plus over 50 local, national, and international music showcases to the beautiful historic city of Richmond, Virginia. We hope you'll join us for seven days of the best of film and music here in RVA. Advanced tickets are strongly encouraged, and can be purchased via the RIFF website beginning February 1st. We look forward to seeing you in RVA this February.
“RIFF was a great place to showcase our socially minded documentary. The festival had strong ties with local media (our film got TV and print coverage), there were a wide variety of filmmakers in attendance (first timers to Academy Award winners) who I am glad to now know, and festival director, Heather Waters and her staff were just so professional and fun! Our showing at RIFF led directly to invitations to screen for other festivals and audiences, plus offers of support from major corporations. RIFF was the perfect stop in a grassroots campaign that ultimately led to distribution. I’d come back in a heartbeat.”
