The RIFF (Roma Independent Film Festival), supported by Rome’s Municipal Department of Cultural Policies, is glad to invite you to its 5th edition.
The festival will display a selection (among the over 1,000 works sent from 70 countries) of 75 FILMS including features, shorts and documentaries.

Several Italian and foreign premieres are among the features: the world premiere Il Segreto di Rahil (Rahil’s Secret) by Cinzia Bomoll, her debut feature, starring Lorenza Indovina and Giorgio Faletti, Elisabetta Rocchetti; Three Days of Anarchy by Vito Zagarrio, starring Enrico Lo Verso and Tiziana Lodato; Short Order by Anthony Byrne, a first film starring Vanessa Redgrave and John Hurt; Black Brush by Roland Vranik, first film and winner of Best Movie at the 2005 Budapest Hungarian Film Week; El taxista ful by Jordi Sol, awarded by New Directors Awards Jury at the 53rd edition of the San Sebastian Film Festival; Ra Choi by Michael Frank, first film and Best Movie at the 2005 Australian Writers Guild Awgie Awards; OFF Screen by Pietre Kuijpers, winner of the Grand Prix des Ameriques at Montreal’s World Film Festival and official nominee of the Rotterdam Film Festival; A New Wave by Jason Carvey, a world premiere; Self Medicated by Monty Lapica, first film and Best Movie at the Santa Fe Film Festival; Dreaming Lhasa by Ritu Sarin starring Jampa Kalsang, shown at the Toronto International Film Festival and The Forbidden Chapter by Fariboz Kamkari, an Italy/France/Iran co-production presented at the San Sebastian Film Festival.
