Reykjavik International Film Festival

Níu dagar í RIFF 2023! Miðasalan er hafin

The 20th edition of the Reykjavík International Film Festival will take place between September 23rd and October 8th, 2023.

Iceland’s major annual film event, the main purpose of RIFF is to offer a wide selection of groundbreaking, independent cinema, and to highlight the work of young and emerging filmmakers, by presenting only first and second works in the Grand Prix competition category New Visions. The objective of the festival is to increase general interest in independent cinema, increase the level of cinematic literacy and enrich film culture in Iceland by offering different cross-platform programs.


RIFF puts Holland in focus


Every year, RIFF aims to present unique experiences available to our guests, like the infamous Swimming Pool Cinema at Sundhöll Reykjavíkur or the Drive-In Cinema, where everyone can enjoy a night of film from the safety of their car.

This year, we are proud to present even more exciting events! At the Nordic House, a Dinner & Movie night will feature the amazing chefs of Sonos, who will serve delicious vegetarian courses centred around the theme of the film. For those who enjoy cinema with an exciting dose of adventure and thrill-seeking, we will screen a film in a cave right outside the city.

And to keep with the ever-evolving times of technology, we will add a new section to the Festival, focused around virtual reality: RIFF-XR, where festival-goers can experience the latest award-winning projects within a world that blends cinema and computer games, in co-operation with Raw Fury.

In addition, RIFF will dedicate a special section to Music in film, screening a variety of musicals as well as documentaries about music. We also turn a special focus towards Dutch Cinema, and many honorary guests from the Dutch film industry will join us!

Throughout the week, there will be several parties to celebrate, provided Covid restrictions allow, for example, A complete take over of the city's beloved Loft Hostel. Both our opening and closing parties are also certain to excite, and we look forward to awarding the most outstanding films and filmmakers of the year! All further information about special events and cinema happenings can be found on


Holland is in Focus

Holland has gained quite a reputation in the film industry through the years especially when it comes to documentaries. The Dutch festivals Rotterdam Film Festival and IFDA the International Film Festival in Amsterdam are well known and respected in the industry. RIFF will be screening all the most exciting Dutch titles straight from festivals and welcome a number of prestigious film makers from Holland in relation to the films.

We are proud to announce that our course Girls Film will be available again this winter. The aim of the course is to give young girls the chance to experiment with filmmaking at a young age in hope that we'll see even more talented women filmmakers in the future.
