Selected as one of "20 film festivals worth the entry fee" by MovieMaker Magazine, the Rome International Film Festival (RIFF) is the premier film event in Northwest Georgia.
RIFF welcomes films and filmmakers from around the globe to share the art of independent film with regional audiences, to entertain and enlighten festival attendees, to provide filmmakers the opportunity for professional networking and development, and to encourage cultural tourism and film industry development in Rome, Georgia and the surrounding area.
The Rome International Film Festival is a filmmaker-friendly festival that focuses on the quality programming of all genres. We want to give a heightened sense of the experience to all who participate and attend. RIFF goes above and beyond to make all of our visiting filmmakers have a great experience.
RIFF is well known for its overall awesomeness. Don't miss out on this gem of a festival.
RIFF celebrates its 17th anniversary on November 12-20, 2020.
RIFF rewards numerous juried and audience choice categories with our prized Sylvia Award—our very own hand-sculpted bronze trophy crafted by a local artist.
