About RRIFF:
Rolling Reels International Film Festival (RRIFF) is a non-profit, student-run organization established in 2015. Presented by Festember, the biggest cultural festival of South-India, RRIFF is a venture aimed at establishing a platform for young filmmakers to interact and learn from the veterans in this field.

Event Structure:
The participants would be given a time period of about 2 months to send in their entries after which the international and Indian short films would be filtered first by a preliminary panel of judges under separate categories. The shortlisted movies are then screened on the day of the Festival which are judged by an A-list jury comprising of maestros of the film industry. Aside from the event, RRIFF also hosts extravagant workshops and a panel discussion on a topic that concerns the industry.
