About the festival
The Riviera International Film Festival is an informal and original event with a specific dynamic path: to present only the work of young filmmakers and to get to the root of cinema inspiration.
What themes and stories inspire under 35 directors today worldwide? What inspires the professionals and technicians working behind the scenes? What path does inspiration follow to create the magic of a movie?
Riviera International Film Festival seeks to make such a path appreciable and stimulating for cinema professionals and keen amateurs, where they can find their own inspiration with us!
When? 26 – 30 April 2017
