Since its first edition in 2001, the Rome Independent Film Festival (RIFF) has become an event that is
followed with more and more interest by the public in Rome and a reference
for worldwide filmmakers. In these years, RIFF has received
works from 5 continents, ending up being an attentive witness
representative of the directions and passions of the independent film industry.  An international vocation that has found expression in
the right choice during the film selection.  An international
soul that has given to RIFF the opportunity not to focus only on
a specific issue but to use the dialogue, research and film experimentation
as identikit of the festival. RIFF becomes the “other cinema”, the Independent
one.  One not throttled by monopolies, the only one who is able to give answers to the viewers
“questions”.  http://www.riff.it/en
