RIYFF is a unique film festival screening films made by young filmmakers 14-26 years of age from Norway and from all over the world. The film festival wants to support young film and tv newcomers. The RIYFF will be held 7-11th of November in the city of Hønefoss.
Thanks to the huge amount of film submissions from filmmakers 14-26 years old we will have again an exceptional film program. Last year we screened 73 films from over 25 countries! Most of the films were from award-winning filmmakers and have been screened at film festivals such as Sundance, Festival de Cannes, Berlinale or British Film Institute Future Film Festival.
This year more than 600 films were submitted from over 70 countries. The categories for the international competition are fiction short, documentary, animation and music video. Soon our RIYFF 2017 festival program will be available here!
