Roxbury International Film Festival

When the Roxbury International Film Festival (RIFF) began in 1999, our goal was to celebrate films that were written, produced and directed by filmmakers of color.  In addition, we hoped to provide a much-needed venue for audiences to view some of these inspiring films and interact with the filmmakers who created them.  More than a decade later, we continue to build upon the rich legacy we have established for the international film and local arts communities. 


RIFF is the largest regional film festival of its kind.  With each passing year, we have grown more powerful in our impact on film and the arts in New England and attracting filmmakers and audiences from far and wide.
