MISSION & OBJECTIVE 
The RICHMOND INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (RIFF) offers an exciting array of film screenings, industry panels, Q&As, live musical performances, and entertainment mixers that bring the spirit of Hollywood to beautiful Richmond, Virginia at the historic Byrd Theatre. In 2011, USA Today called the 1,300-seat theatre, "One of the top 10 places to still see a movie in splendor in the United States." 
 
An inclusive and spirited festival designed to honor true film artists; RIFF welcomes produced films and screenplays of all genres and niches (features & shorts). 
 
With the aim of promoting established filmmakers and discovering up-and-coming talent, the festival works to promote its participating filmmakers and writers through various media outlets and production partners. RIFF is an exciting collaborative platform for writers and filmmakers as it brings great talent together and helps launch careers. 
 
The festival has an additional platform that highlights unique categories that focus on using film as a powerful art form for creating awareness and social change, and is one of the few that offers production opportunities through their parent production partner, The Moving Image Xchange LLC (The MIX).
 
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
All entrants receive free entry to screenings, industry panels, mixers, and various networking events throughout the four day event. 
 
Production opportunity: There will be an additional bonus short film category presented in the fall, which is free for all writers and directors to compete in if they have entered at least one other project into a main category by the respective deadlines. These writers and directors will have only two weeks to complete a script and/or director's vision & storyboard for a corporate sponsor looking to produce a short film. One winning writer and director will be chosen and awarded a cash prize for their work, and at the discretion of The MIX, may be produced this winter. If produced, the film will premiere at the festival in February. See the rules and guidelines page for further details.
 
Outside of promoting existing projects, RIFF serves as a catalyst for producing a new wave of forward thinking projects that help transcend traditional creative norms.
