About RIFF

The Rome International Film Festival is entering its 18th year and will occur November 11-14, 2021. We can hardly wait to roll out the red carpet for our attending filmmakers, loyal supporters, sponsors, patrons, and guests.

The Rome International Film Festival accepts films in every genre, on any topic, from every country around the world. Narrative and Documentary Features by first-time directors, Breakout Features from non-first-time directors, short films across genres, and episodes. We do not disqualify any films based on premiere status or date of completion. We do lean into genre and documentary films.

At RIFF, we know the value of community. RIFF seeks to be an inclusive organization that educates, engages, and entertains our entire community. All this on top of our usual high-quality film offerings and outstanding special guests!

Be excited. Be very excited! Great things are on the horizon at RIFF.
