RIFF’s aim is modest, to change people’s life for the better!

Reykjavik International Film Festival, RIFF, was founded in September

2004, by a small group of film professionals and film enthusiasts led

by Festival Director Hrönn Marinósdóttir, with the goal of presenting

new and progressive quality films, supporting innovation in

filmmaking, networking between professionals from various parts of the

world and fostering social and cultural dialogue.

In a relatively short time span, RIFF has made a name for itself among

the more noteworthy of Europe’s film festivals, attracting

internationally acclaimed guests every year and the geographic

location makes RIFF a naturally ideal meeting point for filmmakers

from either side of the Atlantic Ocean. Every year RIFF shows a wide

range of dramas and non-fiction films from all over the world and

encourages the interaction of film with other art forms by organizing

concerts, photo exhibitions and more.

RIFF takes place every year in late September for eleven days. This

year the festival will be held from the 26th of September – 6th of

October in 2013
