The First Twelve Films Announced at The Reykjavík International Film Festival - RIFF 2014


The Reykjavík International Film Festival, RIFF, takes place between September 25th and October 5th. Screenings take place at Háskolabíó, Tjarnarbió, Bió Paradís and at the Nordic House. A variety of events will take place in Reykjavik and Kópavogur. This year’s festival is certainly a weighty one with a multitude of award-winning films being screened as well as those competing for the acclaimed Golden Puffin. 

Last year’s festival was a great success and received excellent reviews:  

“Filmmakers, if RIFF invites you to present your film, don't hesitate, just jump on a plane. The audience may not be big, but it's a friendly, arty and curious one.”

"REYKJAVIK — On the eve of its tenth installment, there was clearly no need for the Reykjavik International Film Festival to convince the world's A-listers to come to Iceland. Christopher Nolanhad just finished shooting a chunk of Interstellar on a nearby glacier. Ryan Gosling was in town, keeping a low profile while working with editor Valdis Oskarsdottir..."

The Hollywood Reporter by John DeFore, October 10, 2013.

Among the highlights of RIFF 2014 are: 

* Twelve films by new directors compete for the Golden Puffin in the New Visions category.
